A little taste of the tropics...

High temperatures, humid days and thunderstorms .. the last couple of days sure was quite irregular.  And while we may have been a tad uncomfortable the plants sure didn't!!

Hibiscus 'fiesta' 

Hibiscus 'fiesta' 

This ruffled hibiscus is stunning. Despite the picture I couldn't get to color (on numerous attempts)  to display properly. It's a beautiful warm orange with hints of red running through it. Probably best to just plant it and admire it!

Hibiscus syriacus 'blue angel' 

Hibiscus syriacus 'blue angel' 

This robust grower makes beautiful single blue flowers with magenta centers and while it can grow to 6' it remains compact and full allowing you to trim it to practically any height!!! 

Hibiscus 'haight ashbury' 

Hibiscus 'haight ashbury' 

Believe it or not this hibiscus has done quite eye catching pink to cream variegation on the bronze foliage, it can make a maroon bloom but the main appeal is the color of the leaves!!!
