Dirt Princess' Heirloom HibiscusWednesday, April 28, 2010
It's a gorgeous white hibiscus with a purplish maroon centre!
I started the plant from seeds that I received from Dirt Princess about three months ago. Although the plant is still short (only about two feet high) its flower is huge - 5 inches in diameter!
I also like its pretty light green heart-shaped leaves.
Anyone has a similar hibiscus? Is this Swamp Mallow? I have three plants in my garden now :-D
The other seeds, Zinnia that I receive from Dirt Princess unfortunately, did not fluorish well.
The plants were pushed down to the ground by rainfall, hence the plant is 'crawling' instead of standing upright.
Thank you, Dirt Princess, for giving me the pleasure of sowing these seeds in my garden! I have enjoyed the process as much as seeing the results :-D
