"Rags to Riches" 2022

Hibiscus on the Deck

Hibiscus of the Year is 'Rags to Riches.' This hibiscus is a blooming fool! It never stops! Even in a small 6" pot, the plants bloom prolifically throughout the year. The flowers medium sized with 6-8" flowers. The single flowers have a bright red body and eye, with a fuchsia pink halo, and yellow spots and splashes around the edges of each petal. In summer heat, the yellow increases, and in winter cool, it decreases. But the flowers are always bright, colorful, and plentiful!

The bush is strongly upright, full, lush, and well-branched with flowers well presented on every branch. It's an easy-to-grow hibiscus.

It was 82 Degrees again. Still, Summer-like.
Today, this hibiscus's color looked "just red" to me... Other bloomings in the past, however, the flower have had yellow spots and some pink on the red: https://pbase.com/britestar/image/170839544

It is such a great colour and clearly a very healthy plant. Can't believe you are still having summer weather in OCtober! V
