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.

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.
