These hibiscus photos were taken on the front lawn of my neighbour, George, across the street on Bennet Drive, in King City. They are catching the eyes of many passersby. The blooms of the white ones, pictured above and below, are 22.5 cm, or 9.5" wide. Hibiscus growing in King City are hardy hibiscus, ranging in size from 6 to 12" across. They are much much bigger than their tropical cousins, but their colour range is more limited. Dinner-plate sized hibiscus blooms are more prevalent with newer hybrids.
