It is one of my favorite Hibiscus but photos just never seem to do it justice. In person, it sings!

Well, it must be absolutely stunning in person! I had Hibiscus moscheutos 'Luna Pink Swirl' but the blooms weren't nearly as big or as pretty a color as your 'Plum Crazy'. I'm not sure what ever happened to my plant; it must be hiding outside somewhere ... I need to look for it tomorrow! Green Grin!

Pink Swirl is so lovely! I had never grown hardy Hibiscus (only tropicals) until about 2 years ago and I have now found that they can be quite addictive. My collection just keeps on growing Big Grin . I sure hope that you find your Pink Swirl - one of my hardies are supposed to be it, too, but it has not yet bloomed.

Well, I was outside early this morning and searched and searched and cannot find the Pink Swirl Hibiscus. I have some Hibiscus in the ground and some in containers and I know that one was in a container ... it's probably one that I gave away or traded away, LOL.

Isn't that the way it always goes? I've done the same thing more times than I care to remember nodding

LOL, yep ... I have so many plants scattered here, there and everywhere that sometimes I can't remember what's what. I trade plants with friends and neighbors quite often too and with my brain it's easy to forget what's what! Rolling on the floor laughing
