Thanks Tee ... that bloom color on Mango Daiquiri is much, much paler than last year but I still like it a lot.

Beautiful indeed! I have to grow mine in pots and over winter in the greenhouse .. just brought them outside to their summer home this past weekend or so. No buds yet!

Thanks Anne, the Mango Daiquiri has some insects on it, I haven't looked closely to see which ones exactly but just from glancing as I passed by it looked like a couple of thrips on the bloom ... but could have been aphids. I found aphids covering blooms on a few hoyas hanging out in the trees and also on the tropical milkweed. Need to get my soap spray out!

Beautiful blooms! I just ordered a Cherry Cheesecake from a coop! I hope it's not sold out already! That one is so pretty.

Ibeach1156, that double orange is gorgeous! You must live in a warm tropical climate to have shrubs get that beautiful and that large! It reminds me of Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Double Apricot') I had for quite a few years and then lost it to a freeze.

Rose, Wow, Cherry Cheesecake is a beauty! http://www.waysidegardens.com/summerificreg-cherry-cheesecak...

Two beautiful blooms! May have to Google these to see if they're available. If so, will have to make room for them.
