Hibiscus. I brought this plant when it was about 9” high, for pennies. For years it grew but never flowered. It was only in a pot. A small pot, a medium pot and now a large pot. About 6 years ago it finally flowered and to my amazement it was white and not purple. Quite small blooms but blooms nevertheless. Two out of the following years it formed buds but they dried and fell off due to severe harsh winds and rain. But this year huge leaves abundance of buds and flowers. Even in the late evening they glow. Worth the wait. The pennies spent have turned to gold.
