10 Minute Hibiscus

I continue my spring stroll through the beautiful Kitchen Sink flowers by focusing my attention this week on the 3 Step Hibiscus. Hibiscus plants are showing up in all the garden centers here reminding me I need to purchase and plant a new one to replace the one I lost to a freeze year before last. I miss these happy, colorful blossoms in the corner of my yard.
