Mums and Hibiscus

I have so many hibiscus around  my house but they are just regular ones.  I always wanted to have one of those huge hibiscus so last weekend we dropped by at Lowe's and Looked for  it.  It was on sale so it was a perfet timing.  The hibiscus was in  a pot with a welcome sign on it.  I transferred it in  the  front  garden because I know it gets tall.   


Then I saw these yellow and orange mums on sale at walmart for   less than a dollar a pot  so I grabbed  two  of them  since all the mums I have  are in burgundy color.


The hibiscus'  bulbs finally opened up and it was big.  I hope that this comes back next year as I really love it.

I love mums in the fall. Hibiscus is pretty too, but I don't see them often.

I obviously need sleep as I thought it was Moms and Hibiscus, lol. I want to plant some hibiscus, they were my dad's favorite flowers so they bring back memories every time I see them. I like that you put the mums in that pot, the hibiscus would have grown over it.

Is hibiscus the same flower than can be eaten? I could be wrong...Anyway, the flowers look great. It is so summery.

I love mums, they are so cute and colorful. Hibiscus reminds me so much of gumamela. It's nice to look at them, sadly I can appreciate them up close.

hibiscus are called gumamela in the Philippines right? I like those too, i'm no luck every time we go to home depot and look for more sale flowers. glad you found good deal.

Love the vibrant yellow color of the mums. I remember, I used to play with hibiscus, pound it and mix it with water until I produce a slimy texture . Viola, a homemade bubble solution.

They are all beautiful! I also love that iron-cast Welcome note you have with the mum planter. Where can I buy that? It's so lovely!
