The hibiscus plant I bought at the farmer's market this year is doing well. My husband had stained the arbor and fence that I planted it by and we really didn't know if it was going to survive. BUT as you can see, it is blooming flowers and has a lot more buds on it too. So I am very happy. I have another variety of hibiscus in a different part of the yard and has single petals with a bright yellow stamen in the center.
