We went to a friends house in Marion, IL. and his neighbor has these flowers. They are beautiful!! I just fell in love with them but cant figure out what they are. They are so big and vibrant!!

They look like Hibiscus to me, but I'm no expert.

Sara's correct, Hibiscus. They're usually treated as an annual around here (cause they're so cheap,) and you can find them very inexpensively in the springtime at the home centers and nurseries.

Here's a neat website I just found:

Haven't explored it yet, but looks promising!

Where in Washington are you? If you're closer to the coast you might be able to grow hardy hibiscus! I didn't even know there was such a thing to tell you truthfully, I assumed they were all tropicals and the hardy varieties don't look as if they're as showy, but they're hardy to zone 4!

Yep, yep...like everyone said: hibiscus! There are SO many varieties of hibiscus and they come in so many sizes, shapes, and colors! They're found all over the place here in Florida. I always think they're so beautiful

I'm thinking so...but then again, I could be wrong as well!

No more "Florida Beach Bums" siggy?? That one was my favorite. It always put a smile on my face.

Can't let my mom see those pics. She has been wanting some for the longest time. Had a pink one but it died. We have some of its cousins in the Mallow family - Rose of Sharon in bloom now.
