Bringing The Tropics To Tennessee

This afternoon I was once again swept away to the tropics when I looked out my window at this beautiful hibiscus. I found this beauty at Lowes - one of Costa Farms' selection.

And check out this Abutilon 
Well, it feels like the tropics these last two   weeks, might as well look like it.

Hi Barbara! I love Hibiscus for its luxurious flowers. I was surprised to see this plant being used as a hedge in California. Even in tight hedges it managed to bloom.
You showed some pretty colors! The first one reminded me of a mango!

Tatyana, I thought the same thing that it made me think of a mango! We should suggest to Costa Farms to call it Mango madness ;)
