RoS Blue Satin

Gutzmek(6)January 15, 2013

So I usually keep my hardy hibiscus outside after several freezes to stunt them for winter. My current indoor area is becoming crowded and this helps. After a few days of warmer weather, Blue Satin decided it must be spring. I noticed a few sprouts and brought it in. The below picture is after 2 weeks of growth. Guess I will get flowers early this year.

Nice! Wish I had room for this one, I'm a sucker for a blue or purple bloom.
We've had such warm weather here that my tropical hibiscus didn't go into the greenhouse until last week.

This plant is a hardy hibiscus. Depending on your humidity, you can plant this outside. I keep all mine in pots so I can easily adjust to environment and color taste. Attached a few more photos. The plant is growing exponentially.

I counted a few days ago and lost count when I got to 30+
Gotta love H. Syriacus

nice! I have a pair of hardy seedlings that are supposed to be blues as well - I expect they should flower this season, they have started to sprout their spring leaves already.

I still have not found the blues this is as close as I have gotten.
Thanks for the post
