Hibiscus is the backbone of my tropical garden. The poodle hibiscus is a special one that I love. I bought one years ago with my daughter, and now we are separated by many miles of ocean, so it brings a happy skip to my heart whenever I see these flowers. This is such a gentle salmon pink colour.
they like lots of sun, I just love how the sunlight is filtering through the delicate petals here. they are certainly hardier than they look here.
They don't require any special care in my garden, other than a good pruning every now and then so that they don't get leggy. Thank heavens for plants like hibiscus as I haven't been doing much gardening lately and yet they carry on regardless.
