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

Beautiful indeed! I have to grow mine in pots and over winter in the greenhouse .. just brought them outside to their summer home this past weekend or so. No buds yet!
"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."

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.
