I Don't Know The Whys but .....


I like it.

'Painted Lady' Hibiscus -
I saw this the other day and had to take a double take. LOL As you may notice, the back of her bloom is striped - white and pink.

In person, it is much more vivid.

Blooms are always a solid pink. Anyone know why this has happened? Possibly from cooler temps?

Thanks Diane, GOE, and swamplady! Glad you liked her. The last three blooms, so far, made the stripes. I cut them and took them inside to enjoy! I still have more buds and we shall see what they will do. if/when they open.

And to think, this plant was all about gone in January of this year due to the harsh freezes. I nursed her back and now she is rewarding me.
