Very beautiful plant. I recently lost mine in the Texas heat and I'm looking to trade gardenia or ghost plant for another one. So if anyone has one to trade, please let me know so we can trade.
Thank you.

Love this hibiscus, it blooms profusely for me every year since I've had it. I purchased it as a small shrub about 3 years ago and now its around 2', but is still compact in shape. Last year though, it and my other hibiscus had a bad case of white fly. I have since removed many of the damaged leaves and have it in a sunny location in the yard. Its very tolerable of our hot summers in the Central Valley. Even more so than the other Tropical Hibiscus I have. The blooms aren't large, but they are numerous every summer.
