Beautiful Jim!  Is the white one a hibiscus?  Probably spelled that wrong!  I have several that have blooms that are unbelievably huge...problem is the grasshoppers love them.   Cheesy

Very pretty Jim...Mine are close to 10" across CRAZY!  My hybrids aren't nearly that large and arent't quite as pretty as yours.  As I said the "grasshoppas"  love them!  It is so hard to grow anything here in Oklahoma, we have clay for soil and it is hot and dry!  If you need any brick for your home we can certainly fix you up  Cheesy Cheesy

I have a "for me" good sized  garden. I'm embarrassed to say my hanging plants are doing the best. I have a hard time with this NV. sand after growing up with good Ill. soil.

Crape Myrtle...check out the size of this bloom! 



Maui Red Ixora...first time I've given this variety a shot.  They have done really well with the Oklahoma heat.



Hot Pink Oleander...absolutely beautiful and so easy to care for!  I already had a white Oleander, added a couple of pink this year for a splash of color.

Thanks Dear...it's been a tough year for my plants.  Too much rain, then the bugs started to attack, now the heat is unreal!  My fuschia plants are both about to die, they have a fungus I can't get rid of.  Spider mites, grasshoppers and who knows what else, just horrible. 

Crape myrtles are very easy to grow, if you plant them in a flowerbed you will see new ones very soon.  They tend to pop up everywhere!  Next year I'm buying purple, I think that's the only color I don't have. 

You seem to have quite the green thumb yourself!   Grin
