Crimson Hibiscus Blooming Inside

All spring and summer, I have a Hibiscus tree that blooms on the deck. Hummingbirds and butterflies enjoy the nectar from the large blooms. In late fall I will bring it indoors. It will not survive the cold. I have the planter sitting on wheels, makes it much easier to move back and forth. For a couple of years, it only kept its green leaves with no blooms. But most years, I will see blooms. When I first got it a few years ago, it was very small. And now it is over six feet tall. I baby it to keep it alive all year. And it seems to enjoy the environment. Hibiscus is a tropical plant. So it makes sense it will be happy with the indoor heat. And each time it blooms, it lets me know just how happy it is. Makes my day every time. I am always so happy to see the bright crimson blooms inside. Photo is mine. Snapped from my living room.

I had hibiscus in my yard but didn’t dig them up. They came back year after year. Yours is beautiful.

@CarolDM I didn’t have any ideas of digging them up. I’d never heard of it.

@CarolDM Don't ask me where they have disappeared. I was kind to those wild trees that have engulfed our garden and that has resulted in so many of our flowering plants not blooming any more

It's just beautiful, such a rich and warm colour. Just what we need to fill our homes with at this time of the year. Enjoy it and I hope that this beautiful bloom lasts for days to come.

Your hibiscus certainly is pretty and I bet it loves being indoors. Does it have a name?

@CarolDM Not sure if they still do, but when I was younger people used to give them as Christmas gifts, well small ones. I think!

I love hibiscus! I started a couple of pots of them this year. I won't get flowers for years but that is okay. If only I could grow those bird of paradise flowers here.

That is a beautiful bloom and beautifully captured. I have more than a dozen varieties of hibiscus in my garden. I love them as they are easy going and give plenty of blooms with little care and pampering. Since I have them in pots, I have to keep trimming them and the roots. A six feet tall hibiscus plant with such gorgeous blooms would be a beauty.
