As the temperatures start their inevitable descent, I realize this tropical hibiscus’ beautiful time is short. What a show she’s giving for her last hoorah of the season, though. Most of my tender plants survive the winters inside our house, but not very well. This gal will probably look horrible by the time April or May rolls around, but she’ll bounce back. Considering I’ve had her over a year and she’s at least tripled in size since I bought her in a wee 4″ pot, I feel pretty good seeing these blooms! I really need to set up some plant lights in our office since sunlight’s at kind of a premium in our house during the winter months. Here’s another shot of her.
