I would post mine but all you would see is white fly.

How aggressively can you prune these without risking the life of the plant?

Keep them in the sun.

That helps more than anything.

Other than that, you can prune hard and they come back, but, in the shade so do the WF . . .

Hey Adam,

I second Dave's opinion on this, you can prune them back hard and they will come raging back. I cut an eight year old plant down to almost nothing earlier this year (had planned to completely take it out but never got around to it), it looks like a brand new plant now, much thicker and healthier looking. Unfortunately the battle against white fly at my place is constant regardless of how much sun I put them in.

Thanks Pete!

Nice blooms Dave!

Interesting cultivar Mike, looks like a prolific bloomer!

I don't know what this hibiscus is. It mostly had solid pink blooms but every once in a while it throws off a pink and white flower. The first time I saw a pink & white flower I thought maybe it was a sport but another one showed up on another branch. Then I thought it was a sickly flower but the flowers seem healthy. Weird. Has anyone else had this happen?

Thanks for sharing Ben, it may be common but still nice.

Thanks for posting those mallows Tom, it's interesting to see the diversity.

LEN, I want to see your blooms!!!

Angela, it is the depressing time of the year for me and blooms. You were here right when things were going south for the winter :)

Blake, buy CoreTect pellets. You will never get Whitefly or Aphids again. They last about 3 months from what I have seen and they have a fertilizer in them. Not cheap, but they work for any plant.

Thanks for the heads up Len! Apparently it kills leaf miner too which would be fantastic since I have several large citrus trees that get attacked every time they flush. I will track some down and give it a try.

It is just Imidacloprid (like found in Bayer systemic) but it is in a concentrated form and last a while. I bought mine on Amazon.

Today our hibiscus "Black Dragon" has a record breaking bloom of five flowers at once! I was told by someone on a hibiscus forum (that no longer exists) that Black Dragon wouldn't grow for us because it's too wet & cold here. So I'm just glad it's alive!

wonderful plants putu enjula
All Aglow and Black Dragon are just fantastic
do you get seeds where you are , if yes is there a trick to it
as my plants seem not to set seeds for me even if i pollinate them , the seeds start but they drop off just after the pod forms
i live in a zone 10 mediterranean climate

Found this hibiscus in Mexico. Both pictures from the same bush. 1% of the flowers showed white and pink, the remaining flowers were all white or all pink.

      Hi all.
      Several months ago I pollinated two hibiskus flowers. Two months ago I harvested a pod with two seeds in. And look what I've got today. I'm so proud.
      Please note that all my hibiscuses grows indoors all year as house plants.

      Before we moved to Cape Coral nearly 21 years ago, we lived the previous 14 years in Fairfax County, Va, about 3 miles from Mount Vernon and 1 mile north of Woodlawn Plantation (a wedding gift George Washington gave one of Martha's daughters). Our house was a Cape Cod to which a previous contractor owner had added on a small foyer, family room and 1.5-car garage. The front door opened into a drafty 10x10 alcove that collected litter and our garbage cans.

      In the mid-80s we undertook more home improvement. We widened the driveway to 3 cars to hold all our vehicles (we were self-employed). And we closed in the alcove as part of the house and added two windows on each side of the front door. We called our new space - wait for it - the "Florida Room." And what's a Florida room without plants, i.e., palms?

      I acquired the common "bamboo palm", i.e., Chamaedorea seifrizii, a parlor palm (Cham. elegans nee Neanthe bella) and somehow, a Caryota. I even fell head over heels for a red hibiscus I found at a nursery. But one day while we drove a back road on our way to Springfield I passed a small nursery/vegetable stand that had the most fabulous palms lining the road. I flipped out. What were they?

      We stopped in.The owner told me they were "princess palms" (in the real Florida they are known as "queen palms.") Yes, that Category II invasive: Syagrus romanzoffiana. Except in the 1980s it was known as Cocos plumosa or Astrocaryum or some such obsolete moniker. The cost of one of those 6' beauties? $60. A lot of money in the 1980s for a family with 2 small boys. But, eventually, we took the hit.

      Now I didn't know a lot about palms back then and any research started and ended at the local library. No internet, no forums. And what chowderhead would grow palms in VA? I did know that no palm available to me could survive a metro Washington winter. The handsome queens the nursery planted in the spring were dead by the following January.

      I had to make assumptions. I knew coconut palms were tropical, ergo, all palms were tropical, esp. my coconut-like "princess palm." So I established a regimen: palms went outdoors in April and came indoors to the Florida Room in October. I didn't know queens were a bit hardier and could take more cold. But inside a centrally heated house with fireplace and insert, it was a spider mite magnet.I fought those beasties all winter long. My poor queen was so chewed up and dried up by April I coudn't wait to set it free. It just managed to come back a bit just in time for October confinement.

      Anyway, in January 1990 I took the following photos of my Florida Room jungle. It sure did brighten up cold winter days.

      Florida Room of 8121 Keeler St, January 1990

      For years I looked for this Hibiscus I have seen sometimes in villages; I asked in many nurseries but they didn't know about it.

      One day I spend lovely quiet resting days in the "serenity hotel " (see travel logs) ands as we did a walk around and had a tea in a village's shop; the Hibiscus was at the corner on the road side. Luckily the Srilankan climate allow you to cut branches and bring back home and plant in a pot of river sand and it grows!

      Still I never see it in nurseries and rarely in gardens, I love its simplicity .
