Hibiscus Blooming

This morning the sky was a bit cloudy so I decided to take pictures of the hibiscus blooming. Moving toward end of season and only a few daylilies are blooming but the hibiscus are in full bloom.  I love the large blooms and the different colors. They are so bold and create a presence in the flower beds.  

My friend Paula McMurray-Schwartz sent me information about hibiscus tea a few weeks ago. I have not tried it yet  but there seem to be benefits to drinking it: https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/beverage/hibiscus-tea.html.  I guess that you can make your own but it seems that the process is very labor intensive and requires  that you know which hibiscus to choose so that it is edible...all hibiscus are not equal in terms of edibility,

I did learn the mechanics of growing  hibiscus from seed.  Not sure I will but here it is: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/hibiscus-propagation.htm.

Enjoy the beauty of perennial  hibiscus blooming.  They return year after year!
