    Nice! It is amazing how different all of those blooms turned out.

    Our hibiscus plants did not do so well this year. We left them inside in the dark until it was too late. They just put out leaves and only two flowered. Last year I cut them back to just little stumps in the pots. I think I will barely trim them this year.

    Diane, have you made tea from your hibiscus? I have never done it, but had some that was really great when on vacation one year.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your blooms!
    Cheers!

    Never tried Hibiscus tea.... probably pretty good, since the aphids love the plants so much!

    Lovely--a double hibiscus! Seems almost rose-like!
