Outdoor Wednesday….My Hibiscus


Hello!  Welcome to  “Outdoor Wednesday” hosted by the lovely Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer.

I have been really passionate here lately about Hibiscus.  I bought two tropical Hibiscus in red.  I also planted three hardy Hibiscus.  This afternoon I went to Lowes and bought another two hardy Hibiscus!  lol  I love the big and vibrant color of the flowers!  Look at these tropical Hibiscus.  IMG_3540

I can see myself in Hawaii where Hibiscus grow abundantly. :)  I can at least imagine I’m in Hawaii. :)IMG_3543IMG_3541IMG_3496

Look at this beauty!  This is a hardy Hibiscus.  I can just imagine how stunning they are going to be once these bushes fill up some more.  I planted the hardy Hibiscus in the ground since these will come back.IMG_3497

And these are the two that I just bought this afternoon at Lowes.  I’m getting ready to plant them. :)  Aren’t they pretty?   They are also hardy Hibiscus so these will be planted in the ground.  IMG_3547IMG_3550IMG_3549     

So did you feel like you were in Hawaii?   I truly wish I was. :)  I hope you all have a lovely Outdoor Wednesday.

In my place, we call them gumamela :-)

Yes, they are beautiful, aren't they? I believe I saw somewhere a variety of it in white. They look nice too.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

I love hibiscus too. Every year we would go south, I would bring one back, hoping it would grow. Even the hardy one did not make it. Maybe if I mulched it heavier and put it closer to the house.
Your are just gorgeous and I like your clay pot.
Thanks for sharing and stopping by to visit me. Come back again soon.

Hi Sandi!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you browsed through my other postings so that you too, can see my hibiscus. They are so beautiful. I absolutely love them. I have a red one, an orange one and a yellow one. I can actually grow them in Phoenix. Yours are so beautiful. I have never been to Hawaii so I don't know what they look like there, but yours are so stunning I can't imagine anything more beautiful than the pink one. Thanks for stopping by Country Wings in Phoenix. I signed up to your Follower list, and would be so honored if you pop back and follow mine also. Your sons are so precious. "Country Hugs", Sherry

I love that beautiful pot that your Hibiscus is planted in...I have never seen a pot with a cross on it.
I read in your profile you have 6 sons...I have a dear friend in Michigan that has 6 sons and so far all her grandchildren are boys....if there is ever a girl born into that family.....she will be a severly spoiled
I enjoyed my time on your blog and I love your scripture

Hibiscus is a tropical flower and make me feel to go on Holiday when I see it. But we do have one that can live outdoor here in Sweden even in the wintertime.

I really love Hibiscus too. If your a little careful with them here in Phoenix they will grow really well. They make a back yard look tropical!
Very pretty!!

I hope you and yours have a great Holiday weekend!
Be Safe!
