In photos: Blooming hibiscus in my garden

Last spring we planted a hibiscus plant. I'll be the first to admit I don't know the first thing about these - in fact, until we planted this one I hadn't realized there were different varieties. When it started blooming it looked very different from the other one we had planted a few years back.

Our other is a late bloomer and doesn't last too long, couple of weeks at best. This bush, however, has been steadily blooming all year long consistently. I suspect we'll see flowers through October if the weather stays warm as it does in some years. I hope so anyway!!

Here are some photos of this bush taken over the past few months at various times:
