Just beautiful! In central NY we are winding down the season for growing flowers outdoors. I have some mums that will hold up for another few weeks, but otherwise my flowers are looking a little spent 🙂
I used to have hibiscus. I wanted to graft different ones on a host plant but never got around to doing it. Then they got either way too big and bushy (in the ground) or developed scales and died because I wasn’t caring for them as I should have.
I saw absolutely lovely ones at a recent plant show at Washington Middle School last month. A woman is a hibiscus fanatic and develops new breeds – one of them even had a very nice fragrance!
Niu Nursery deep in Hawaii Kai has some nice hibiscus varieties though not sure if they are still there since I have stopped checking them out.
I noticed that the red ones I bought are more prolific than the pink ones I bought first. The red ones have more flowers every day whereas the pink ones bloom only every other day. The pink hibiscus are bigger, though.
I love your hibiscus, and the color. They are going to be gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing them later too. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. It was wonderful meeting you both in DC and Hawaii, definite highlights. I look forward to that third time, hopefully not too long down the road.
