Touch of the Tropics
This hibiscus is on its second year here. It's planted on the south side of the stone wall to give it a better chance at survival. The big flowers are glorious, and the plant blooms for quite awhile. The individual flowers usually last a day, sometimes less. Let's face it staying that gorgeous long term would be tough!
Can you see the mental picture of this flower behind one ear, a flowered bikini and a Hawaiian beach? I sure can. Yes, some images need more help from photo shop than others. Still it's pretty neat for upstate New York!
