Liz that is beautiful! I don't have any of the real exotics, but this double peach is probably my favorite of what I have. Very faithful, give me a few blooms everyday. Sweet plant.

Shari,
That bloom is beautiful!! I onlu have a few hibiscus here, as the winters in N central Fl would kill most of them and my DH allows me only so much room in the greenhouses at the nursery :(

Liz and Judy - it's so nice to have you join us here! I've seen a lot of your posts in other forums and hope you decide to visit here often. You will be a welcome addition to our little tropical family. Liz - is that a type of ginger (sorry if that sounds stupid....I' m still in the learning phase of life), Its incredible!

Good Morning!!

I'm up with puppies, we raise English Bulldogs and when we have a litter it's 24x7 puppy care.

This is a wild guess hidden ginger?

Oh Judy....I feel for you hon! Used to raise long haired dauchsies....but the babies are sooooo worth the trouble! Somehow, the trouble always seems to find me, whether I know enough or not!

Shari,
thank you, and my mother taught me there is no such thing as a stupid questions. Without questions you get no answers. The pictures I posted were gingers, the last one is Curcuma khymer orange.
I havean AOL photo album with 707 pictures (mostly gingers), if you want me to send it to you just email me at [email protected] or [email protected] and say 'Liz send me pictures' and that is precisely what I will do. I love my digital camera, because it allows me to take as many pictures as I want of my plants and my critters that are all over (skinks, toads, frogs, butterflies, birds, etc...) it's a dangerous thing..lol
