A nearly native plant habitat garden located in northeast Georgia in eco-region 231 (Southeast Mixed Forest Province) zone 7b on 10 acres of meadow and forest habitat. I’m Karin, gardener, photographer and writer. I hope you enjoy a little taste of Georgia and will come back and visit often. xo!
I know I just blogged about Hibiscus blooms last week but I think I am obsessed with them. I just have to share this one with you. In early spring I purchased this Blue River Hibiscus from the Georgia State Botanical Garden. It has been growing happily next to our small pond and we have been enjoying the foliage draping over the water.
The buds began to formed about a month ago and I have anxiously been waiting for them to open. I knew the day was close when the crinkly petals appeared.
This morning two big 10" bloom were there to welcome me.
Look at this stunning snowy white bloom with no eye. Just looking at it makes me feel 10 degrees cooler!
The Blue River Hibiscus was found growing along the Blue River in southern Oklahoma and is so named. It is a delightful addition to my garden.
They bloom for just one day but they are beautiful even as they hang their heads good-bye.
