    This time last year I planted 5 small hibiscus in my garden. They did well for a while, and then I nearly lost them to ravenous snails. Just recently they’ve really taken off and I’m getting some great flowers on them! They’re my pride and joy!

    So beautiful :)

    I’ve had a small seedling in a pot for years now and though it’s surviving it’s not flourishing and never flowered :(

    I must get it planted out in the garden this Spring.

    We get lots of sun and heat here so I think that definitely helps. I love the extravagance of the flowers!

    It’s not a plant that does well in my high up bit of Gloucestershire which is a pity as I would love to have them, such beautiful colours. I can understand why they are your pride and joy

    They're beautiful. I've never tried those.
