Thanks Tee ... that bloom color on Mango Daiquiri is much, much paler than last year but I still like it a lot.

Thanks Anne, the Mango Daiquiri has some insects on it, I haven't looked closely to see which ones exactly but just from glancing as I passed by it looked like a couple of thrips on the bloom ... but could have been aphids. I found aphids covering blooms on a few hoyas hanging out in the trees and also on the tropical milkweed. Need to get my soap spray out!

Ibeach1156, that double orange is gorgeous! You must live in a warm tropical climate to have shrubs get that beautiful and that large! It reminds me of Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Double Apricot') I had for quite a few years and then lost it to a freeze.

Rose, Wow, Cherry Cheesecake is a beauty! http://www.waysidegardens.com/...

Two beautiful blooms! May have to Google these to see if they're available. If so, will have to make room for them.
