Summer Hibiscus



My daughter trimmed her hibiscus tree back hard last January. It always seems drastic when a plant is taken back so far, but it filled in especially strong.



The flowers are larger than ever this season, with petals that fade from palest pink to crimson.

I was like Steven until I moved to Auckland - now I see them everywhere, but they are still magical for me. Do you get the monarch butterflies, too?

I think you have a most beautiful garden.
