{Hibiscus Blue Chiffon}

On April 25, we did receive this Hibiscus Blue Chiffon from Logee's Greenhouses just before we went to Florida on the 29th. It is planted again in a larger pot for on the patio, just have look...
Just a beautiful, double Hibiscus called Blue Chiffon
Six weeks after we received this beauty, she is blooming perfectly.
June 12, in the sunshine on our patio.
Since I did not yet know our new Nikon D3300 camera, this photo in the shade is not the best one but I found the two fallen and folded up buds so special for showing how they end their cycle...
Don't you just LOVE this Hibiscus Blue Chiffon?

  2. Such a beauty. When I hear "hibiscus," I think about big red flower. Or pink or white, usually not blue.
    The blue chiffon sure looks unique and very lovely!

      You are right on that one as there are a lot more red or pink and white ones. Double Hibiscus are already rare and when we saw this beautiful blue chiffon; we had to order it. No regrets!

      Well, six weeks was actually a very brief period from tiny plant into blooming for this lovely blue chiffon Hibiscus. It did hurry up for us.
      So glad that you had a pleasant break from your month-long rain by having your son and the children visit you! That always makes for happy times.
      You are quite welcome and I will always write in your blog's space as I do admire you.
      Hugs and happy weekend to you dear.

      It is always good to check out Logee's catalog as they for over 100 years specialize in rare plants, mostly tropical but so gorgeous. We can keep them as room plant or on the patio instead of having them wilt away in winter. These Hibiscus however are winter hard.
      Hugs and wishing you a peaceful weekend,
      Mariette

      You are right about that, give it one more year and it does bloom even fuller.
      Sending you hugs and wishing you a peaceful weekend after so much tragedy for your country and my birth country.

    Sou apaixonada por hibiscos.
    Tenho vários desses no meu jardim.
    Eu o chamo de hibisco dobrado e não sabia que era o blue chiffon.
    Tenho esse mesmo hibisco branco.
    Bom fim de semana!
    Tudo de bom!
    Beijinhos.

  11. Lieve Mariette,

    Prachtige kleur van de hibiscus als dankbare bloem,wat zal je daar veel plezier aan beleven.
    Wij zaten afgelopen zondag bij vrienden in de tuin en ik kon mijn ogen niet afhouden van de grote bloeiende hibiscus die zij al vele jaren hebben staan, de struik moet vaak gesnoeid anders wordt die veel te groot in hun stadstuintje.

    Fijne zondag en liefs,
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, er zijn erg mooie exemplaren van de Hibiscus en daar kun je intens van genieten.
      In ons klimaat hoeven we de struiken niet te snoeien maar Nederland is natuurlijk een erg groeizaam klimaat.
      Liefs en een fijne nieuwe week.

  12. Liebe Mariette,
    eine bezaubernde schöne Hibiskus. Ganz tolle Farbe.
    Sie lieben viel Wärme.
    Wir haben eine rosa Hibiskus...eine mit sehr grossen Blüten. Aber ich muss einen neuen Platz fidnen wo viel Sonne hinkommt, denn sie erblüht so spät das es schon fast Herbst ist.

    Schöne und gute Zeit Dir, deinen Fellnasen und natürlich deinem Mann.

    Liebe Grüessli

  13. Dearest Mariette,
    The blue hibiscus is beautiful. I had no idea such a beauty even exists. I assume that it would have to come indoors for the winter in these northern climates.
    Enjoy your sunday.........*s*

  16. Wow, blue hibiscus♡♡♡ Such BEAUTY with rare color, Mariette; Your new camera is working well.
    So sorry my belated comment; having busy and hot muggy days (^^;)

    I hope you're doing fine, my dear friend. I'm starting to catch up with my friends' post.

      Thank you for visiting this rare beauty! Yes, the Logee company is selling very rare and exotic looking, mainly tropical, plants. This one is hardy though.
      This is the hard part of summer and yes, humid and muggy it certainly is. Had terrible back problems from the humidity and going probably inside the airconditioned home. The weeds got pulled but I paid for it with a cold on my back's muscles. It is almost over now...
      Hugs to you dear friend!
