I grew Hibiscus coccoina 'Texas star' from seed three years ago . I've been watching it get taller and taller , it's now over 5 ft . But no blooms. Till this year ! It's been months since I spotted the first flower buds . Every morning I go out to check for the first flower to open .
Yesterday afternoon it did ! The 'Texas star ' is red . This is , a lovely huge white flower. I had to do a bit of Hibiscus research ...looks like this is H 'Moon moth' or 'The white flower swap mallow' . I have been giving it so much more water this year. ... no wonder it's happy ....'Swamp
