Those are gorgeous blooms, Chrissy. I just love Hibiscus. I didn't even know they come in blue...Uh Oh!

I bought this a few years ago, before I knew the difference in hibiscuses (hibisci?). At that time, I thought everything that was labeled a "Hibiscus" was a Tropical Hibiscus that does so well here, but this is definitely not one of them! LOL It redeems itself when it blooms, but it's such a small plant, compared to the rest of my hibiscus. I've never tried moving it, maybe it would like another location better.

I bought 2 of these yesterday to plant on either side of my porch. I understand that they start growing fast after 2 or 3 years? I hope so, because I have little fantasies of them being the 6-8 feet promised and passersby going 'ooooh' LOL I hope that mine are as blue as yours, I will watch them like a hawk!

By the way, your picture is what inspired me to join this forum, I was researching these and saw your beautiful picture and had to join to take a look around! Thanks very much Chrissy, I have learned so much already!

Awww, shucks, Butterqueen! I'm just a newbie myself, although I have learned SOOOO much since joining DG, I'm not nearly as clueless as I used to be! :) I believe my plant is 3 years old now, and it's re-leafing (is that a word?) much more vigourously than last year, so I'm hoping it gets taller this year! I had planted it behind some stuff (when I thought all hibiscus were tropical hibiscus) in the hopes that it would be 5-6' tall, so I might have to move it to where it can be seen, as the blooms are SPECTACULAR!
