Last fall I planted two beautiful hibiscus, Kiss N’ Tell, in the front garden planters. They have wonderfully tropical orange petals with deep burgundy centers. The botanical name is Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. It was sold by Home Depot as part of the Hisbiskiss line. The 6 to 7 inch blooms stand out nicely against the foliage of this shrub. I had hoped the small plants could be in the large container until this fall when I would transplant to the back yard against the fence.
With the warmer than usual winter and spring, they grew quickly. By the beginning of May, they were not happy in the pots. No matter how much I watered them, the foliage was turning yellow. At the end of May, I transplanted them to the backyard.
I feared the already hot summer sun would kill them. But a few days later, the tropical storm passed us and we had a week of many rain showers.
And the hibiscus smiled in its new location.
Thanks for visiting.
