Last year we got the first one. A vibrant red hibiscus with a braided trunk. Amazingly a walmart find that didn't die! (So many times, any plant I buy from Wal-Mart always seems to have to suicide plan.) It made it through the winter and most of it has come back, but being the first one in the yard it holds a special place :-)
|Love this picture. Took it in the early morning with my phone and it just looks like a painting!|
I have a few cuttings that I picked up one day of hibiscus and I am very happy to say that all three have rooted. All three are different colors. Last week the first cutting bloomed!
And last week we added two more: a variegated and a maple leaf. So far the varegated does not have any blooms yet, but the maple leaf hibiscus has already started! The crimson buds look like little turbans littering the stalk. Hopefully soon they will be opened up!
