I wasn't sure if this was going to come back. All my other hibiscus are thriving. I bought this because of the leaf color I haven't had it bloom yet.

I purchased this plant from a local merchant in the orphan plant section. After about 2 wks I noticed it has new leaf buds indicating it is trying to establish itself in its new home.
