Very lovely flowers! Love the oranges and pinks/salmons. Anyone here grow any hardy hibiscus'? I am thinking about buying one in spring (or a few). Even though they only bloom once, they would definitely be worth it. I've seen some blooms that are huge!

Here is my little guy.. At the base of the trunk is a flashlight for reference. Like I said, all the reading I have done so far has lead me to believe that we should not be having enough sun for this guy to keep growing (the days are too short now, sun up is around 8am and sun down is getting closer to 3pm every night) but yet there it is still. No blooms for a couple days, but there are some buds making their way out. This one is 4 different plants entertwined / braided. Received this past mother's day and it has grown about 1ft since then.

At the bottom, to the right and left are avocado tree sproutlings, and around the base for cover is moss from the backyard and green wandering jew.

Cindy, your hibiscus is so pretty!  And thank you, I love the color of mine as well.  I love orange flowers.

Cindy I just joined Listia and just won my first batch of seeds.  BTW, your hisbiscus is gorgeous!

Cindy, I have never personally planted hibiscus or rose of sharon seeds, but since the roses of sharon reseed very readily at my sister's house with no input from her I would imagine it is not too hard.  Thanks you for the compliment.

I have six different kinds of roses of sharon in bloom right now, four of them visible in these pictures.  The funny thing is, the white rose of sharon pictured is the oldest of the group but is next to the smallest (the youngest is the smallest.)  They are, left to right, white rose of sharon, maroon double bloom rose of sharon, maroon single bloom rose of sharon, and light pink with maroon throat rose of sharon.

the color is so vibrant, and i especially that the hibicus is all one color, not to fond of the throat being a different color.

Plumbago

"Yes I know the plant well, they love our climate in Australia, a fast grower, will cover an old ugly fence in one season. Loves a good hair cut and then flowers again.It has a dormant period for a couple of months during winter, but stays alive."
