There is something red in the barely contained organized lush.
A hibiscus. I was not fond of hibiscus on Maui. They grew to tree like proportions and were forever covered with some form of pestilence. I am of the mind that you just don't grow plants that are bug candy. There are too many horticultural choices to sentence yourself to chronic battle.
Just a bit outside of the tropics, hibiscus don't have all those sticky warty bugs attacking them in droves. And they freeze to the ground in the winter keeping them forever in a medium sized shrub form. The flowers are bigger too.
I like my hibiscus in North Carolina.
