Okay, it’s time to confess that I’m a complete novice at gardening. I’m starting with pretty much a blank slate, tabula rasa, nada. But I’m learning and having fun experimenting with different plants. This summer I found two beautiful hibiscus plants that I potted and put out on the patio and fertilized a time or two. Beautiful, huge yellow blooms followed. The yellow was so bright, it was almost a neon yellow. What a delight.
So, this weekend, a fresh crop of blooms opened, and they opened up to reveal beautiful orange flowers. Orange! How odd. Perfect for the season, of course, orange pumpkins, orange leaves, and now orange hibiscus. Wonder if the cooler nights we’ve had had anything to do with it. Not sure, but it was a pleasant surprise. Do any of you know why they turned color?
