OOPS, my bad. My eagle eye husband pointed out that this is not our hibiscus. He is correct (I hate it when that happens - lol). This is a salad plate size hibiscus flower that I photographed when we were in Pigeon Forge last week. Having said that, Curly, our own hibiscus is doing quite well. Perhaps you should put yours in the car and take it on a road trip and abuse it some!
