2016 is the first year I have been able to do any gardening. I live in southwestern Ohio, USA. I love roses, orchids, toad lilies...everything 😁

I am intrigued to see what sort of #greatcolor is associated with that #greatname -- surely not the blush pink I'm seeing on the bud?

@kelsey92 have seen to many Japanese beetles this year. But I’m sure they are some. Can also be the leaf cutter.

I was afraid I'd lost my potted hibiscus this year, but once it started coming up it came up with a bang! Over a ft tall now and in the ground.

Very nice, Katie! But do not get the naming logic, where is the choco-latte colour (or have I a daltonia problem) 🤔😊

@inuit I had wondered the same thing. But I do love the dark vains
