Your hibiscus are neat looking! My neighbor has a bunch of them lined up outback but they look slightly different. Walking threw the woods one day I found a wild hibiscus that must be the result of a bird eating the seeds from hers and spreading them... I'm so tempted to take a shovel and dig it up now and bring it back and put it in my yard :loser: I just love hibiscus.

That really is a very pretty hibiscus. Mine are still going strong, lots of buds to open yet. The sedums are colouring up now, the standard phlox is almost done and the sumac is colouring up. Fall is on the way fast now.

Dawson,no I don't,but I have lots of other indoor plants..
Tell your mom,the Rose of Sharon,is probably the easiest to grow,as long as it has sun and water.
I have a double white one and it's still in full bloom.

her problem is she lives in an old area , with lots of very mature trees so they block alot of sun and take all the water....

I'm really partial to white Chico, especially when they have a dark throat :lovestruck: let's see if Frenchy goes anywhere with that :cool:
