Hibiscus Flower

I love Hibiscus plants. They are so easy to grow and grow very fast. This particular plant I grew from seed, along with approximately 80 others. Each year I save the seed pods and then the next summer plant 2 to 3 seed it pots . They all seem to come up & I have given them away to friends or anyone who asked for one. This plant grows to about 5 feet tall as it is still in a large pot and it blooms all summer, dies down in the fall and winter and then arrives again in the early spring. What a joy to see it return each year. Each bloom will only live for one day which is sad but fascinating to me.
