Bought this 4 color braided hibiscus, nearly dead, on clearance, for $5.00; after doctoring it and babying it for a month, it is just coming into it's own!

The red was the first to bloom, then the white, and today the orange; still waiting for the yellow to bloom, but there are tons of buds ready to open.

This is definitely one I will try to overwinter in the house!

As they say here, Hibiscus are "thankful" plants, with little they are happy and reward you with beautiful colorful blooms. Good idea the 4 colors in one pot! You've done a great job, it looks very healthy.

On clearance = No tag !

It was the last one @ the blacktop nursery @ our grocery store, but, I had seen them, at the beginning of the season, so, hoped it was one of the quad colored ones, and it was!
