Hibiscus blooming


I came home this morning and my hibiscus is blooming. Only one bud has opened so far, but it has a lot on it.[/IMG]

Thanks Bali. I'm not sure if I can leave it out or not. I think it's a tropical hibiscus. I bought my house last year and the previous owner left it. It's one of the braided ones like they sell at Lowes. I almost killed it because my boyfriend thought it was fake. I had to tell him I watered his "fake" tree because the leaves were turnung brown!

I have another tropical hibiscus, "Mango Mist". The tag on it says never below 50. I have a hardy hibiscus outside, but I just got it a month ago so we'll see how it does.

Yeah Bali, i figure better safe than sorry. I don't mind bringing them in. This way I get to look at something pretty all winter.

Thanks Sherie! I love how big the flowers are. I just wish they lasted more than a day.

WHY NOT show us your blooms now so we can enjoy.
Photos on here I refer to.

I had loads one time but some sort of bugs destroyed them.

My plants do not like being in the house at all. The red hibiscus still looks good and has buds on it. I only get 1 or 2 blooms a week though. My peach ruffled hibiscus is dropping leaves and buds like crazy.

I just got home and looked. The braided hibiscus has a bunch of buds on it so hopefully I'll be able to post some pics soon. I'm trying to sprout a couple of seeds from a pod I found on it. I think the bees pollinated it with my mango crush hibiscus. Since I found out the tropical hibiscus has to be cross pollinated I've pollinated a few flowers on both of them, but the ones on the mango crush falls off before it matures (along with some of the leaves and buds). I gave it some super thrive and fertilizer yesterday. We'll see if it helps. After browsing through a bunch of posts on here and hearing about brugs I googled them. They are gorgeous! So it seems that is going to be my winter time obsession this year. I ordered a box of NOIDs off ebay (17 cuttings) and I joined 2 FB groups about brugs. I got some cuttings for shipping and I've bought some from people in the groups. I just bought 8 more and I'm anxiously waiting on them. 4 are NOIDs but they had huge beautiful pink and white flowers. The other 4 are named variegated cuttings ( 2 Maya and 2 Emerald Frost). I'm a little worried about them because I heard they are harder to root. I've already lost 7 or 8 so my fingers are crossed that these do ok.
Ok, enough rambling. Lol...how are things with you? Any new growing adventures?

I once have it in my house but my 2yrs old son keeps on harvesting the leaves, without me knowing. Maybe I'll grow another one soon. Hope my son won't harm it again.

Very pretty, I had two outside, not sure if they are coming back this year as I haven't seen them. They were for zone 6.
