  11. I haven't seen the multipetalled type, but i love even just the single pelalled. However, those i found are very susceptible to aphids, more than the ordinary native hibiscus.

  23. There are other colours of Rose of Sharon but I like the purple colour most, both the single and double petal flower varieties. The single flowers ones have a large and fat pistil which is so lovely.

    Andrea is right. In Malaysia, the plant is susceptible to aphids and it is difficult to make them bloom repeatedly.

    Rosie, I have not seen this plant for sale at our local nursery yet. Perhaps you need to get a cutting from a friend. Hence, if we see them for sale at nurseries, we should immediately get one.

  24. I love Hibiscus flowers. One kind is hardy over here but the more showy ones are not.
