My hibiscus addiction continues
It's competing with my brugmansia addiction this year, but it has a slight edge. I just potted up 47 second year seedlings into a gallon pots, and only lost two. Believe it or not, these were left in 6 packs all last year, because during the hurricanes and then the cold snaps, I didn't have time to repot them. I didn't think any of them would make it, but to my surprise, quite a few did.
I have about a dozen mixed hardy hibiscus, some H. radiatus, H. Cannabinus, H. Moschuetos, something just labeled "pink marshmallow", H. Mutabilis, both double pink and single white/pink versicolor. Might even have a texas star that survived. That would be nice, as my other one in the ground died.
I still have a lot of H. Militaris and H. Cannabinus left in pots from last year, and doing well. After weeding and feeding, I found I only had lost two. Have a few I can't identify, but my two Lunas came back. I'm thrilled about that, because I bought them just at the end of the season, and they almost immediately went dormant.
So now I just have to find a place to plant all these goodies! LOL I'll be living in hibiscus heaven!
Oh, forgot to mention I bought a Hula Girl this year. I've been wanting one forever, and I know exactly where it's going to go.
