Impressive! Outstanding! Huge! It's impossible to describe the size and impact of my brand-new perennial hibiscus adequately. I guess I'd better let the photo speak for itself.
We were exiled to SoCal for thirteen long years--at least I got to dabble in semi-tropical plants while we were there. We had three carefully chosen hibiscus that were thrilling to watch bloom. Our new Strawberry Swirl is cold-hardy to minus 30--no tropical tendencies except for the gorgeous blossoms.
Just a side note to visitors from Jami's Tuesday Garden Party...
I do actually have veggies too--golden zukes, cherry tomatoes, blueberries (okay, so they're a fruit), onions, potatoes, etc.--but they are lowly pawns. All hail the hibiscus queen!
