A Texas star in my back yard ,in front of a Pride of Bermuda tree.
Pardancanda sent this to me last year as a bareroot plant. I was real surprised to see the blooms this year.
First Bloom! Approximately 6" in diameter and a wonderful addition to the flower bed.

Seedling from Hibiscus Texas Star
A seedpod just beginning to open
This is a hardy Hibiscus in zpne 7b.
It grew to over 3 feet the first year. Yhe very large billiant red flowers open only for about a day. They are very showy. The plant does not seem to need staking and has delicate looking foliage that doesn\\\'t seem to be bothered by bugs. Mine is growing in some very poor clay soil.

Overwintered indoors, set out in its container in summer and hoping it lives forever. It's gorgeous.
Planted spring 2005, bloomed the first summer, thrived in my Alabama garden!

New to this site. I got this plant at a plant sale and I would like to know if white blooms are common? All the pictures I see are red.
