    Yeah, now I really have to start collecting hibiscus plants, they're really coming in some cool variations now in comparison to the plain old red, white and pink I used to see growing up.

    Cathy when next you go out to buy the Lava rock you have to wear Sunglasses with side blinkers so that your eye wont catch anything that 's on any shelf other than the lava rock
    Glad you saw this one it is awesome!!!! I have only one Hybrid peach in my garden. Do you get a problem with white fly?

    Angela, I do need blinders
    I haven't had a problems with white fly on Hibiscus but funny you should mention it...one crepe myrtle battles white fly all the time? There are two more ( all 3 are in a row on the side of my house for shade) that are sitting about five feet away and they are never bothered. Weird, huh?

    That is a beauty Cathy, I got a couple also. The grower I got mine from told me the hybrids should be grafted onto the common red or pink ones for a stronger root system. Apparently nematodes attract their weaker roots
