Wow. They are all stunning but I especially liked Gabiel. Of course Black Dragon & Cindy's Heart are beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us.

You have such a great collection. You certainly have the talent for hibs.

Thanks Peg! I do love them and enjoy them a ton. This is a new found hobby for me. I just started collecting a year ago. I always loved hibiscus, but only knew about the garden varieties up until last June while browsing the web. I came across a photo of Night Runner. OMG, that changed the world for me! :)

I got my first Eyelash the other day. One day bloom, tiny, and real cute. It is a baby pink with darker pinks and some purple in it.

I also got my first Misbehavin too. It also was a one day bloom, if even that. Not sure if that is the norm for this one. John, is your a one day bloom. Real cool colors. Bright as the sun.

A Thanksgiving bloom. Just got this one from HVH. It is a good bloomer, and Charlie sent me a very pretty bush too.

Nice photos Kristen. I would imagine all of yours are now outside for the summer. Hope they all made the transition smoothly. My "Misbehavin" is definitely a one day bloom in the warm weather. I think it may stretch out to two days during our winters. Hard to remember for sure though. Do know that "My Way" wins for bloom duration down here. Two days in the hot summer and 3-4 days in the winter.

Send us some rain!!! Still almost no rain and we're now into the "rainy season" with nothing predicted in the next 5-7 days. Heard its now the driest winter and spring ever for Ft Lauderdale.

HI Kristen - such beautiful blooms. I love Cindys heart - i've been on the waiting list...i wonder when it will be available??

And I MUST get that black dragon - i've been admiring it for a long time. I wish HVH carried it.

You are so lucky to have gotten your news hibiscus' with buds. I don't think my large size Acapulco has buds yet. It sure is healthy looking though.

Kristen, they are all stunning. Eyelash is such a sweet bloom. Beginning to like the orange much better than I used to do. They just stand out from the others so well. Thanks for sharing all of them with us.
