Wow – I can’t believe this new plant in my garden actually bloomed! Usually with new plants not much happens the year you plant  –

  • 1st year they sleep,
  • 2nd year they creep, and
  • by the 3rd year they leap.

I put in 5 hardy Hibiscus plants (hardy in Zone 4) and this one was the fastest growing.  We had some really windy, cool air move in over the weekend, but here’s a few snapshots before it was ravaged!
