Photo Description
One of my Hibiscus (rosa-sinensis) has an unusually large bloom. It is so large, I wanted to share it with you.

I admit, I've been a bit stingy with fertilizer. A box of Miracle Gro is $15.00. That's a lot for my purse. (Somebody once said I was so tight, I squeaked when I walked).

Anyway, I found some for $10.00 a box. I bought two. I've been more liberal with it and I sure can tell a difference. Maybe I'll be more liberal all next year.

Don't know why my arm appears do dark. I avoid the sun as much as I can.

I thought of Judy this afternoon when I discovered my Pink Swirl had opened. Guess this makes us kindred gardener spirits. Just for the heck of it, I'm entering mine in the contest, too. May the best picture win! (I must say, her picture has a much nicer background).

My dear parents started growing these hibiscus when I was in high school (oh, oh...does that reveal my age?). My father was a master gardener and could probably grow roots on a pencil. I have saved the seeds from these heirloom plants and have spread them round the world in memory of my dear parents. These grow here in cold Wisconsin even though they are a native of Hawaii.

My main reason for this post is to share my first Hibiscus bloom of the year. It is born on a Hibiscus moscheutos. The name of this variety is 'Luna Pink Swirl'. Yes, I have many tight buds. In a few days, the plant will be covered with blooms.

Commonly known to us as "gumamela", this kind of hibiscus is beautiful because of its chandelier like bloom. The petals are curved upward, but unlike the petals of other varieties of hibiscus, this one is forming like that beautiful chandelier design in your living room.

This deep salmon beauty is getting so large. I keep transplanting it to a larger pot. I have no idea what I'll do when it gets too big for me to take it outside every spring and bring it in every fall.

This picture is all I have left of one of my favorite hibiscus. I'm sorry to say I lost it two winters ago. I rooted a cutting from a neighbors bush. The neighbor has since cut down the bush.

I was out in the back this week and happened to go to the side yard, looking for Buddy. And I was standing near the hibiscus and saw the moon shining through the leaves. My camera is not very good, but this was fun anyway.

I neglected this plant for several years by keeping it in a small pot with poor soil. It never bloomed. Last year I moved it to a larger pot with rich soil. As you can see, the plant is showing its appreciation.

This hibiscus is amazing in color and in size. It is a perennial, it grows real good here in Florida. I had it in Virginia and I brought with me when I came here.

I have a small garden as I live in an apartment. Every year I make sure to get a Hibiscus, as they are my favorite. You can see the beauty they produce with some tender loving care.

My friend gave me this hibiscus. Every year, I am amazed at the blooms. Sometimes during the year it has orange flowers or two toned orange/gold. Other times of the year it has pale to med. yellow, single and double flowers.

I hope you will enjoy seeing the changes.

Thank you for the lovely photos! We just planted a hibiscus that very same color! I can't wait to see the blooms. In the past I have always planted the red ones, but I'm excited to see these in full bloom. (05/25/2010)

This Hibiscus is just breathtaking, with blooms almost 10 inches across. This is its first year as I planted it in the spring. Thought I'd share with everyone.

That one is beautiful. I just ordered one called Jazzberry Jam and it's a pink too. I also bought the large deep red hibiscus that has large blossoms too. If I get some seeds from it this year, would you like some? (08/17/2009)

My family bought me a hibiscus plant 10 years ago. Every year I change the soil and fertilizer it a couple of time in the summer, it never blooms. What is your secret? I would like to know. Thank you. (08/24/2009)
