Spin the Bottle

You can find the best stuff at grocery stores out here. This hibiscus plant was fairly begging me to put it in the cart. How could I resist? When I lived in California before, I got some of my best plants at the drugstore.

The pot was labeled thus:

I kind of like the creative spelling. Wasn’t sure the name of the hibiscus was actually “Spin the Bottle,” so I looked it up. Yep, that’s it.

I think it looks more like pink grapefruit.

When I lived in California before, hibiscus plants were being decimated by whiteflies. Fingers crossed, that won’t happen again.

Hope your week’s going well so far. Welcome, new subscribers!
