In my first project on Hibiscus I had mentioned that Hibiscus is my favourite flower and I am trying to collect different varieties of them on my terrace garden. I had shown only two varieties then. In this project I am presenting thirteen beautiful varieties of the flower with impressive shapes and colors. They are very easy to cultivate by cuttings and makes a very good addition to your garden. Needless to say that all my hibiscuses are grown in containers. Hope you will like them.

The color and variety found in the Hibiscus is so lovely, Sharad. You have so many beautiful kinds! Do they bloom year round in your climate? Your patio must be such a wonderful place to relax and perhaps even practice yoga.

Amazing! The blooms are so beautiful and the colours remind me of the flavours of ice-cream. :) As Robin has said, your patio must be a very special place when they are in bloom. Thank you for sharing these lovely blooms with us. I am very envious that I can not grow such a lovely flower, but happy that I can admire yours.

Sharad, these are beautiful. It is funny that I never did like the Hibiscus family but since I am getting older I have become very fond of them. That is a good thing since my neighbor has many Rose of Sharon and they are sprouting all over my property.
Thjanks for sharing their many faces.

Gorgeous hibiscus, Sharad. I truly understand why you love them so much. I love the white with the ruby/garnet coloured throat. Beautiful.

I am curious about the middle right photo on the top. Very interesting flower. Prithee, what is its name?

WOW!!! Love the colors. Unfortunately we can’t grow them outside here. I just bought one on clearance for $2.00 at a local Lowe’s. I’m going to try to over winter it in the house.

Aileen, your climate is somewhat similar to mine, but possibly a bit warmer. You don’t mention your grow zone, so it is hard to tell. Tropical Hibiscus are a tropical plant. I have abour 20 of them here in Canada, but they are all in pots, so that I can bring them indoors for the winter. There are, however, hardy hibiscus which I also have which we can leave in the ground all year. They bloom later in the summer and early fall and have massive flowers. Also in a similar vein are Rose of Sharon plants which are also hardy and come in a variety of colours. The ones that Sharad has shown above are typical tropical hibiscus.
