-Dixie Rose

Dixie Rose, Hibiscus mutabilis.

The house we rent was built in the late 30s. It wouldn’t surprise me if this hibiscus was planted soon after. When we moved in, it was rotted, with poor, sickly growth and only a few blooms over the year. It has been pruned, well-watered and fed with compost and sheep manure and this year we have a few beautifully big blooms like this one.
