Positive AmandaTaylor7 On Jul 20, 2008, AmandaTaylor7 from Alvin, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

Voodoo Magic took about 4 weeks to become established enough in my flowerbeds to where it began really performing (from a pot originall). I'm used to hibiscus taking longer than this. This hibiscus has outperformed most others, putting on nearly the same amount of blooms as the Rum Runner does for me. Each day there are at least 2 blooms on my baby Voodoo Magic (only 2 feet tall presently) and sometimes as many as 4. She is constantly loaded with buds and has been an upright grower requiring no pinching.
