This is the second year for this plant, the first year no flowers but this year absolutely stunning…....8 flowers over 2 weeks. Unfortunately each flower only lasts for 1 day.

This is the first time I am seeing a water Hebiscus. It is looking very attractive. How do you propagate it? Hibiscus flower generally lasts only for one day.Sharad

Absolutely beautiful flowers and I think your water gardens are lovely. I don’t have any experience with water gardening, but I like the way yours look.

Stunning flower, Davidc61. I note that you are in zone 4, and in Australia. I am quite impressed with it. Are they readily available in your area? I don’t know of any sources here in Canada.
BTW. Welcome to GT. It is good to see you participating already, and posting pictures. We LOVE to see other gardener’s work. LOL

jroot – Adelaide is Aussie zone 4 which is equivalent to US zone 10. I’m in US zone 8/9 and I’m as far south as Tasmania. ( By Aussie standards I would be in a zone 2/3 which in NA would probably be interpreted that I live in the arctic!)

This is Hibiscus coccineus. They grow in wet mucky places here in Florida. It’s different than the standard hibiscus, which is Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. I’d love to have one of these, but I have a moratorium on new plants for a while. At least until I take some more trees down.
