I ended up with 4 out of 5 cuttings. I have given 2 away I have one in my front flower bed and one in my backyard. There lots of those funny buds starting but this was my first surprise bloom. I love the idea that I can have blooms from early spring until late fall. It sure is a tough plant. Many thanks

Looks great Paul! Glad you are happy with them, it does seem to be a hardy little plant. The neatest feature is how it blooms all up and down the stalk, not just at the top.

Thanks for sharing that.

Thank you for this wonderful gift I can keep on giving as it gets too big? Yes the one I have in my backyard has its second bloom this morning. I am trying to pollinate but not sure if this will happen. There are lots of buds up and down the stems. What I love about this plant besides the color is I can now have blooms over a much longer period than do any of my other hibiscus. I also love the way the bloom tucks in the bloom when it closes. The bloom is beautiful even after it closes.

I looked online and they say it is not only dought hardy but can grown in pond water.
