It's cold and dreary here in Texas, so I went over my old bloom photos from fall for a little pick-me-up:

That's one big bloom!
Here's what I hope my backyard will look like one day!

That's my brother's rather large hand next to Moy Grande.

Hope to have some more actual, you know, plumeria pics next winter to share!

Thanks Jen. This is a treat, especially when we had temps that were in the negative teens last night. We actually broke record low temps!

RE: Here's a little something to brighten your day

Thanks for the bright and colorful pics! I have to grow hibiscus and plumeria inside during the long northern Utah winters so that I don't go insane! I don't think my Moy Grande hibiscus has that many petals. Do all your Moy Grande flowers have that many petals?

RE: Here's a little something to brighten your day

Hi arctic,
The Moy Grande was at the botanical garden here in Austin so I can't answer for the normal petal count. All I've heard is that they're supposed to be more cold-tolerant than most hibiscuses. It was so huge and such a spectacular color I had to get that shot.
I leave my hibiscuses out all winter here, let them get frost temps around 30 or so to kill off pests, then cover them with blankets when it gets colder than that. Of course, our winters are much less harsh and shorter than yours. They die back in their pots and come back late spring. They're such happy flowers that I'm sure you agree they're worth your trouble in Utah!
