"Mandarin Wind" Hibiscus - It does blend in well with the mural, don't you think?
My hibiscus has made it through a couple summers now. This winter I have a "new to me" greenhouse and am not certain how warm it will actually be. For the last few weeks this hibiscus and a few of the most heat loving tropical plants have been living on the "mezzanine" area of my building. So while it has been every range from 28 to 80+ degrees outside this last week, the Mandarin Wind has been basking in the dim and drafty hallway.
Now it is blooming.
I know I have been confused by these temperatures for December in Texas. The hibiscus shares my confusion.
