My Hisbiscus finally bloomed, she's a beaut!!!!

Postby Venice » Sep 10, 2009 2:13 pm

OMG I was so excited when I went to water my tomatoes, of which I had a nice bunch. But it's bloomed and it's HUGE, and such a deep red. These pics don't do it justice. There's a ton of buds, so I hope the frost holds off long enough to really enjoy it. Normally I get blooms starting mid August. So this is crazy late.

Yes that's my Dinner plate.

I guess I need a bigger bowl ahhahah.

I thought the lil red dots on the top were pretty cute.

This one is. It's called a hardy Hibiscus. You usuaaly have to buy them at a nursery. Not at Rona or Walmart. They usually carry tropical hibiscus, great for summer or indoor plants.

Tropical---Small shiny leaves, 2-4" blooms, can have double bud (ruffle), pastel colors

Hardy-- Large dull eaves, 6-8" dinnerplate blooms, no doubles (flat blooms only), they come in white, pink, & red.

They're amazing plants.

You are so lucky. I have been out in the yard everyday looking at my blossoms and they don't appear to get any bigger. They better hurry or the frost will get them.
