Hibiscus (Hibiscus syriacus (Gurhul))

This shrub has dozens of buds just waiting to burst into flower. The tortoises like to eat the flowers but are safely out of reach so I can pick just a few a day for snacks!

Great. Mine have just come into bloom. What colour are yours.
Dawn, If you can wait a couple of years before you get any flowers, I still have some seedlings which you are more than welcome to. If you decide that you would like a couple, drop me a pm with address and I will send them on to you.
