Kenaf, October Rose, Ruby Hibiscus (Hibiscus cannabinus)
Glad to see it flowered for you! I'm assuming this is the one I sent you? Mine hasn't because I was too quick to cut it down for overwintering.
Yes, this is the one I got from you, it grew about another half foot and then flowered, I was so surprised that it bloomed so soon!!!
Thanks much again, it was really beautiful and it's getting ready to flower again!!
