They are a blast, one off those fun that call wrongly, wrong that mister cheep couldn't resist buying a red-orange one a few weeks ago.

There is a wild type that grows around here. A freshwater tidal marsh a mile from here has acres of it. It doesn't bloom but while it does!

They are very beautiful!! We can grow these Hardy Hibiscus up here in the north and now I'm starting to plant more as our population of Japanese Beetles has declined. I know that they will never be a great hummingbird plant, but I really love them. Ours are all in the ground though and not in a container. I was amazed that several came back so strong this spring. I'll post some photos as soon as they are blooming.

I've seen one at a botanic garden here as big as a dinner plate. There's so unusual sometimes they seem fake, like plastic. However, I always admire the orange tropical ones sold at Lowes or Home Depot. I never got one though as they're sold as annuals and I just don't have the space for it. It's certainly a showstopping flower though.

These plants do need a lot of space, sun, and moisture. They also can be very short-lived if their ideal conditions are not met. Showy and beautiful, but not for a small or dry garden.
