Cataloguing, 19th April '20. I'm amazed how quickly I got this, after a few complaints. It's useful doing a screenshot. I'm in favour of that. Happy Hibiscus days ♥️♥️🤠

@jeatacake Fingers crossed but I think it needs moving just to be on the safe side ♥️♥️

I have one of these. They need a very sunny & sheltered spot. Can't wait to see it in flower 👍

@jeatacake What type of soil do they like Jeff? I moved a Camellia to place this one ♥️♥️

I don't think they're fussy re acid or alkaline soil, but prefer it well drained I think, but sheltered & sunny are vital for flowering.

@jeatacake Thank you Jeff. When my Orange Emperors have finished I think I'll move it there. That was my intention to put it there but it would have meant disturbing too much. That is a sheltered spot and good soil there. I had a look for yours but there was so much to go through. I was back to your days in Bangkok 😀

Oh I've never put a photo of it on here as the darn thing has never flowered yet, grrr! Its leaf buds are just opening & a couple of other things have flowered for the first time just recently.
