What Do You Know About Hibiscus?
I have one. I went to the grocery store today, and I noticed the big pots of hibiscus, but they cost $25.00, so I didn't even think of getting one. There's a place inside the front door, though, that has bouquets of flowers and potted plants that are marked down. I found one of those hibiscus plants there for $5.00! So even though I don't know the first thing about them, I bought one! I've done this with other flowers, including violets and miniature roses (those two were less than $1.00 each), and just fiddled with them a bit, and they're still living. One of my violets is blooming up a storm right now, in fact! So I thought I'd do that with this hibiscus. It's big, in a 5-gallon pot. I put it in a corner of my yard that gets lots of sunshine, but is just a tiny bit shaded later in the day. From what I've read on the internet, they like plenty of sun and water, but not to stand in water. So we'll see what happens!
