Hibiscusssssss

Many,many years ago,we grew hibiscus,here,on the GreatWall.But after an infestation of grasshoppers destroyed them,we sort of gave it up.

This year,they have been rediscovered,and we're giving it another attempt.

Don't ask us the names........we're not good with names.

Unless one of us remembers to save the plant tag.


Which hardly ever happens.


We saved the tag!!!!!..............Hibiscus moscheutos 'Luna White'


The flowers are the size of a salad plate.Love this one!!!

Chris,
Very pretty colors those hibiscus flowers. They are SO tropical! I'm glad you're trying them again since you like them so much. Did you say they are in containers, too?
Had a great time walking around the garden with you yesterday.

Beautiful flowers! I can't help but think of my Rose of Sharon. The flowers look so similar. I would imagine they must be related.

Hi,

Thanks for the visit to my blog, I love company. :) We had Hibiscus growing at our last home, but nothing like the beautiful ones you have. This year I'm trying some different types of Succulents in pots, I'll have to take them in for the winter since we gets temps below freezing. It was a joy to see your garden.

I love the Luna Hibiscus, I had one growing here a number of years ago and it did beautifully until the summer heat came a few years a it died, never to return. I paid a ridiculous amount of money for it too!

To A New England Life, Rose of Sharon is a hibiscus and its species name is syriacus. They are beautiful as you know.

BTW, you are leading in the seashell identification competition!

I love all Hibiscus plants including Rose of Sharon and the other hardy ones. My tropical Hibiscus are just now starting to bloom after being frozen back in January the night it hit 23f.
