Thriving Hibiscus

The Hibiscus that didn't do much all Winter, is going gang-busters in the backyard. Heat activated growth enzymes, strong UV, a partially shady wall, and ample water - viola. The picture here, depicts a 6 feet tall plant.

From a flora perspective, the Hibiscus is sort of the "show off" of the flower community. HUGE stamens, massive blossoms, beckon "come hither" to hummingbirds and pollinating insects.

"Feed me, Seymore"
