    Thank you, Patty. Actually I'm using the photo of the yellow hibiscus as the wall paper of my computer monitor at the office and everyone likes it.

    Angel, what an outstanding variety of color! Like you, I have several all around my side/front yard. I hardly tend to them, as I am always focused on my pool landscape....along with my first time orchid also there !
    I am always surprised how well they continue to bloom, despite ,y somewhat negligence. Your photos and the feedback from other members makes me realize that I must "stop and enjoy the hibiscus" more when I drive into my driveway and head to my back patio!

    It blooms fairly often, Bruce, considering that the cutting is still less than two feet tall. It shows the promise of being a prolific bloomer. But then practically all hibiscus are prolific bloomers in my country.

    Jane, we tend to ignore the hibiscus perhaps because they are not fussy plants. They do thrive on neglect, though the occasional trim makes a more shapely bush. I am limited only by the space of my small garden. Otherwise I would plant more. There is so much variety of hibiscus here.

    Why don't you try growing them, Ed? I think the hibiscus would grow in your area.

    They are ubiquitous over here, Ed, the hibiscus, the bougainvillea, and crottons. Private gardens, along the sidewalks, on vacant lots, and even on the beach. I have a few cacti in little pots. The larger ones are planted in the ground.
