Busting into Bloom

One of our hibiscus plants on the front patio got a taste of water the other day and it responded gratefully and exhuberantly this morning. Normally we get one to three blooms a day, if any. This morning, there were nine fresh blooms on the plant! (Not all visible here.)

On closer examination, the flowers have a strange other-worldly appearance. But I've loved hibiscus blossoms ever since I first saw them in Mazatlan, Mexico, many years ago.


  1. Holy smokes that's a whole lot of vegitation. That would die in less that a week if I was taking care of it. :)

  2. I don't think you can kill them, unless you just refuse to water them.

  3. I want to live with hibiscus! Though I probably would forget to water it.

  4. Oh, oh. Does that make me a dealer?

  5. I think Hibiscus are fairly hardy. That is a beautiful colour, & the blooms are wonderful.
