More Hibiscus, More Hibiscus!

Last I mentioned them I'd been battling spider mites on my hibiscus:

I'm happy to report they've bounced back!

The one in the larger pot even has small buds!

Well my husband and I were at ShopRite (supermarket) and these tall hibiscus trees were only $10! $10! Its about 3-4 feet tall. I brought it home on the floor in the back seat of my car and only had to lean it a bit to make it fit. My car has fared worse.

Hibiscuses like being rootbound but look at that sad little distended plastic planter. That's a tipping hazard right there! I will keep an eye out for something comparable in size but more solid.

Check out all those buds - I can't wait to see what color the flowers will be.
