Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Candy Wind'
I am sure this flower isn’t going to look great when I roll into work on Monday morning. A late season container garden replacement in a 4 inch pot it wasn’t worth digging up and putting in the conservatory. There are a few much larger Hibiscus inside now and I have never been a fan of how well they do over the winter. They have a lot of insect problems and don’t really bloom that well. One advantage to brining them indoors is the fact that you have a big plant to start off with in the spring. The Hibiscus usually snap back soon after being put outside in May. I have found giving them a light fertilization program during the late stages of winter seems to agree with them.
This macro shot was captured using my compact camera, a Nikon P6000. It can focus really close and usually always gives good color rendition.
Our area is still under a Winter Storm Watch for tonight. The anticipation on these events are sometimes worse than the actual storm itself. It is still New England and anything can happen with the weather.
Thanks for this fantastic shot ....
