What’s Blooming Now – Mellow Yellow Hibiscus 10/8/09
Mellow Yellow Hibiscus is blooming. This hibiscus is deciduous in zone 8b where I garden, a low grower (about 3 feet tall), and reseeds freely. But give it lots of width room because if you want to let the little plantlets that spring up all around it grow, believe me, there will be lots of them. If you’ve ever grown okra you will notice a striking similarity between the bloom of okra and the bloom of Mellow Yellow Hibiscus. Okra and hibiscus are in the same family.
