In the right year, with just the right conditions, the plant will go from loaded with buds to a riot of blooms in what seems like a single day.
The flowers end up being a little larger then a saucer or dessert plate. They feel very old fashioned with the simple white with a red center.
We planted these along our walkway from the garage to the house and they are the perfect way to begin and end each work day.
I think they are a hearty hibiscus. (I always vow to do a better job of mapping what we plant. This is mostly wishful thinking because I never record my notes in the same place. Something to aspire to.)
|I thought it would be fun to show the blooms in various stages from bud to full bloom.|
|You can begin to get a sense of the color and shape of the flowers.|
|And then, the blooms!|
