Tropical Hibiscus 'Rum Runner'
Hibiscus rosa-sinensis
Hybridized by Schlueter
Additional info: (Bahama Bay™ Tropical Hibiscus series)

I'm an adult with a female adult-sized hand so you can get an idea of how large these Rum Runner flowers are!

WOW! I'm sure you do not need any artificial light to go out in your garden at night, such is the brightness of your Hibiscus.

You sure may! I purchased it in a 1 gallon pot from my local Home Depot for about $16. I believe that HiddenValleyHibiscus.com sells them as well, although it may be a lot cheaper just to go to your local HD like I did.

This is the NEATEST plant! Thanks for the compliments on it, although I don't know how much credit I can take! I just planted it, fertilized it and am watching it grow!!
