Hi Sandy, I love hibiscus too and need to grow a few. I had one that stayed short. The blooms were large, but not dinner plate size. In two weeks, it was done blooming. I was so bummed. It wasn't planted in a good place so I saved the seed and dug it up.

That one is just beautiful! I love the lemony eye.

No you did not. I have so many seedlings that it is some time hard to keep the names straight, specially when the stupid squirrels keep pulling the tags out. Rolling on the floor laughing
