Hibiscus days gone by.

hay , well here you have it, the Hibiscus that did make it thru last winter, I had my doubts and it didn't stay pretty for long, it looks really ick these days, Oh and the horse has a habit of changing colors fairly regular. While ORANGE is my fav, I think the Ballerina Pink before was kind of a neat color. THis patch is one of the gee, I'll just put it here for now till I decide where it needs to Live???????? I dug up a few of this and that, added a couple Hosta, in the back ground is some odd plants called Strawberry Bush, not for people consumption, but I think eventually the birds will like them, SOMEthing odd i found on Ebay but Native to the SOuth???? I'll have to get a close up of them another day. Poor Hibiscus, this was a post about them??? what happened???

They love water. But, they can also tolerate the heat and drought. Won't be a pretty, but should still live.

I like your horse.

I've read that if they can survive their first winter then they are here to stay.

Hibiscus don't survive the winter here. We had a beautiful hibiscus bush when we lived in N.O., it had beautiful salmon colored flowers.
