This is my newest Hibiscus by the name of Leslie. It has the hugest blooms and many of them at a time.
I didn’t know at the time what the name was till I got it home and saw the tag, but how appropriate to have chosen Leslie on behalf of my beautiful sis. It’s gorgeous like she is.
This is for you sis :-))

  • thank you so much Marjorie. I am taking lots of photos of it, it blooms constantly outside as long as it’s summer here, lol. Then I bring them all indoors for our harsh winter

    Leslie ! Really Sis what a lovely compliment that is and a gorgeous bloom to boot. I kinda think the flower has me beat in the looks department for sure but I am thinking perhaps I should find one called Vickie. A Fave Sis :>)) Leslie

  • I looked sis, there wasn’t one, lol. I found a site that lists a ton if Hibiscus names. this really is Leslie. Glad you like it. And yes you are as beautiful, honest
