Ah, what a Beauty she is! I discovered her at the local boxstore and couldn't resist taking her home despite the $20 price tag....
Pink, white, blue, yellow and a touch of orange .... Nature gets away with all kinds of color combinations, but the real treat I got the next morning seeing the new daily flowers of the Creole Lady
Her blooms open up a hot pink with deep purple in the center
I must say I am not very good at keeping Tropical Hibiscus alive. They love lots of fertilizer, want to be regularly watered and start sulking when the temperatures drop below 50 F. I'd say they fall into the category of 'High Maintenance'. So, I keep them as 'annuals' ;-)
