Daily walking has become my excuse for being a garden snoop. This way I can check out what other great plants others are growing in their gardens and ones I may want to add to my gardens. I spotted this pretty pink hibiscus on one of my walks. Hibiscus is a member of the mallow family and while I haven't grown hibiscus I have grown okra and rose mallow, both members of the mallow family as well. The mallow family have pretty, showy flowers. I didn't have luck with okra other than the flowers but rose mallow grew well for me which reminds me to plan on growing it next year.
