I have three hibiscus plants but the third one is not included in this post. It's dark red and is a regular in many gardens around these parts. The pink ones flower in profu- sion and they do so for almost the entire year. But the yellow one isn't as prolific. I sim- ply love the colour. The tinge of red in the middle makes it all the more beautiful.
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
