Saving Hibiscus

I took this shot of our hibiscus earlier today. Two weeks ago it was on death’s door. We’ve had it for at least five years, but one day I found tons of whiteflies on most of the leaves. I tried blasting it with the hose, but that worked for one day. Went to a local nursery and asked what to use for whitefly. Turns out NEEM Oil is a godsend and after two applications we were whitefly free.

This was taken on my iPhone because my “good” cameras weren’t charged. The colors are very true-to-life and the detail is quite decent.

Great weekend, everyone!
