Heavenly Hibiscus

Among the showiest flowers coming into bloom around here at this time of year are the various varieties of the swamp rose mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos), my Plant Care Profile for which you can find here. I just added two more varieties to the garden yesterday and this morning the plants already established in the garden opened their first blossoms. So here are the varieties I already had...

I was also really tempted to buy another variety with enormous flowers of the purest white but since I could not think of a good spot for it off the top of my head I managed to restrain myself, at least for now...


Thanks for stopping by!
