gorgeous - i have the same variety i think.

mine just bloomed about 2 weeks ago, and i'm in zone 7. i have heard that the hardy hibiscus blooms later than the tropical, so i think its normal.

have a nice day [Smile]

Thanks for the comments..... [clappy] [clappy]

It is hardy and took 2 years to adjust.. Lots of waisted foilage, I think.

Thanks again.

Dodge, that's beautiful!

I'm in zone 5 too, and my Kopper King Hibiscus bloomed about 8 weeks ago and my Lady Baltimore bloomed about 6 weeks ago and my white one bloomed about that same time, then my red one bloomed about a week after that, but they are all finished blooming now. Sorry, I don't know the names of the red and white one.

Dodge, I forgot to mention that my white Hibiscus looks just like yours except mine doesn't have the red eye. Mine is all white!

Too bad u didnt show me the photos.....wahhhhhhh

I know they are really late ..But your climate should be the same......Thanks for posting.

They are pretty but the beetles are killing them. And they take so long....I was considering moving them into a lesser spot. ha ha
DO they transplant well??

Thanks

Hi Dodge!

Ask and you shall receive, my friend! These pictures were taken earlier this year.

Dodge, I usually have a terrible problem with the Japaneese Beetles, but this year they weren't very bad at all. I don't know why!

I don't know because I've never moved mine. I've been wanting to find out if and how I can divide my Kopper King because it is really getting too big for the bed. I know I can't dig the whole thing out and transplant it because it is just too large. It is such an awesome plant!

Patches, it looks like you have one of the same ones I do. It's called Blue River 2...not sure why, though.

Dodge, it really depends on waht variety you have this white one, my red one and my Kopper King have blooms the size of dinner plates, but my Lady Baltimore has more trumpet shaped flowers and they don't get nearly as large.

Thanks, Alan! I appreciate the information and you may be right, but when bought this 4 years ago it thought it had a woman's name as part of it, but I may be wrong! I don't know!

Alan,Patti, Dodge or anyone . If you have any blue river 2 seeds your willing to share please let me know. I have been unable to find that dinner plate hib. here in the DFW area. Also like any dinner plate like different colors if anyone has any extra's.
