Gorgeous bloom, Jay. The first of many to come, I hope.
I garden for the pollinators.

Beautiful indeed! It's odd that Hibiscus don't seem to have a scent .. has anyone ever noticed a scent on their hibiscus?

Lovely, Jay! Lovey dubby I really like the bit of petal separation on that. I don't understand why that has been breed out of so many of the new cultivars to the point where they end up looking perfectly round. A bit of a star shape is prettier to my eye.

Sweetly scented flowers are often moth pollinated. Are there any Hibiscus that are primarily moth pollinated?
