Since we don't have a forum for them and the vast majority are perennials, here's a spot to show them off ... tropicals, hardy, Rose of Sharon, any of the others as well. (Besides, I love them.)

I ♥ them all. I go out every day now and inspect mine to see what they are doing. Since they are often late-bloomers as well as some of the last to leaf out in the Spring, I get anxious. I'm like an old mother hen, I guess. Green Grin!

Susan & Tee WOW! I just bought a few hardy ones from Mamajack. They just came about a week ago. They are huge roots. They are showing little buds already. Hope I get a flower this year. If not I will look at yours here. Hope you will post more pictures.

Tee,
I bought Kopper King, My Valentine, Summerific Berrylicious, Summerific Summer Storm and, Tie Dye. I put them in big pots thinking the soil would warm faster and I might get a bloom in August.
Anyone try to propagate these?

They are fairly easy to propagate. Stem cuttings stuck into a pot of good potting soil is about all it takes. Thumbs up Green Grin!

I have several hardy hibiscus - Kopper King, Fireball, Fantasia, Dream Catcher, Plum Crazy, Eruption and something else I can't remember. But they usually don't even pop out of the ground until June 1 around here. They look so tropical, but they're quite hardy here.

Fireball is one of my oldest:
