The Hibiscus Syriacus is a common plants in the north of Italy . Mainly the variety with simple flowers that is also used for hedges. It is very easy to grow and it is also pretty sturdy . I usually make new plants from seeds. Here there wasn't the bluish variety but I had the occasion to pick seeds in Connecticut and now I also have that color. In Italy the Firebug is a common pest of Hibiscus . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firebug
