Too cute! I should have cut off the bud since it's a newly rooted cutting but couldn't bring myself to do it. The flower is almost the same size as the whole cutting but still tiny compared to a mature plant flower - it's in a 4" pot!

I have two rooted cuttings up for adoption - they are in the picture. Will only trade for other Tropical hibiscus - H. rosa sinensis.

Looking for doubles and bi-colors. No brown or blue .. just can't get into those. Would dearly love an Anasazi Maiden or Tangerine Dream.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Don't you just love her? I had some blooms last spring...
It needs to be pruned so I will be rooting some; I think all my friends need one of these.
While the earth remains, Seed time and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease. Gen. 8:22
