Well it's the first day of Spring, time for a new discussion thread. As the weather begins to warm our Hibiscus will be starting to produce knew grow and start blooming again. This is the place to discuss all things Hibiscus.

My Ft. Myer is blooming. It took a beating during the winter in the greenhouse so I need to prune it up some.

That's a pretty one, Chris! I'm slowly bringing my greenhouse plants outside.

My Ft. Myer is going crazy suddenly. Also, I thought they were dead but I've go three of the Hibiscus I planted last year in the back coming up again even though we had several days below freezing this winter.

That's great that the ones outdoors during freezes are still coming back up! I wonder if I could do that here in AZ? I think my NM place would kill them for sure.

You never know they might. Even though it was a warmer than normal winter we did have some days in the 20s.

I might have to do an experiment. I do have hibiscus that root easily for new plants.

I wrapped my large Hibiscus this past fall in burlap, kept it watered however, apparently unlike my Brugs that I did the same to and are coming back the Hibiscus didn't make it. I went out today and pulled it out of the pot it was in to take a look at the root system. Not sure if you can tell very much from the photo but what I did was cut it way back and repotted. If I fertilize with some good Hibiscus food could there be a chance that this will come back? Luckily I've got five seedlings from some seeds I collected last year.

I would say repot and give it a chance. I have several that look dead. I am going to leave them alone until probably mid May, then if there is no sign of life I will chunk them. We are still getting 50's and 60's at night. I want to wait until the night temps are consistently in the 70's.

Thanks Jay, I'm hoping it will come back from the roots like all the others I put in the ground last year are doing. That amazed me as I thought they were gone for good.

Hi guys, well all my plants are moved to the new place but minus several hibiscus. I'm with Jay, I'll hang on to them to see if they come back but with all of the high wind and greenhouse problems on those super cold days that went on forever, they might be goners
I miss reading the post. Hope to be back since the remodeling and move are almost over! Hurray! Hurray!

Got about 20 or so. My first plants from seed period.

I hope they bloom for you, Brenden!

Here is a pic of my Nizhoni last year.


Here is a pic of the same hibiscus Nizhoni today. Is there normally such a difference in the blooms?

It's a pretty one, Chris. I need more hibiscus, so I'm planning to send in another order to the Hibiscus Lady in Hawaii. She has the nicest plants! It's expensive for the shipping, but they really do well.

Thanks Karen, I've got a lot of Hibiscus seedlings from seeds I won in one of the raffles here a couple of years ago. The seeds came from Jay and are still viable. Plus the seedlings I put in the ground last year are coming back this year.

That's great that you have grown a lot of seedlings. Once we are in one place again, I'll be able to do seeds. I've tried doing them, but dragging them back and forth between states is just too hard, and I can't leave them for 2 weeks without problems. I have a wonderful grow tent with a high powered LED light for it. It really grows things quickly. For a while I tried taking it back and forth, but it was ridiculously hard.

I've got tons of seedlings. This was going to be my wife's raised bed in the front yard but I started putting my seedlings into it after I potted them so she decided I could keep it.
