Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Thank You! This was planted in one of my greenhouse raised beds 3 years ago. It grew up to the ceiling, at nearly 8 ft. I've had to keep trimming it down to keep it in bounds. It blooms all year long. I've made cuttings and the cuttings grow quickly.The only thing I hate is that it is a magnet for white flies and aphids. I fight those all year.

Lovely job, Karen. I looked at it and the mind went directly to Georgia O'Keeffe. She shared that touch of brilliance of yours. Big Grin I tip my hat to you.

I see what you mean, Sean, but that hadn't crossed my mind before. It fits right in with her work.

What a beautiful bloom, Karen!
It does look very happy. Thumbs up

How do you root the cuttings?
I've never tried it for hibiscus.

I just take short tip cuttings and put them into soil. They normally are rooted and growing well within a month.

Beautiful Karen! And I agree, so very O'Keeffe. Smiling

Thank you for the hibiscus tip. I have a perennial one I love with black leaves and red flowers. I'll try making cuttings this year.

That sounds beautiful, Casey. I don't think I've ever seen red flowers with black leaves. It sounds like a stunning one!
