A crimson debut ...

... the first Hawaiian hibiscus of the season opened yesterday in our garden.

  2. Pretty! Tell me, how do you grow hibiscus up here, with the winters and all? One of my favorite memories of childhood was visiting my grandmother when she lived in Florida and, every morning, going out with her to count the hibiscus flowers. Since then, I've always wanted to get her a hibiscus plant, but she lives up in the Endless Mountains now (she's the one who lives near Tunckhannock) and I don't think a hibiscus could take the winters up there.
