The first time I have seen this flower. What a beauty. The leave shapd is very special for a hibiscus too.

Yes, we’ve already had a very curious neighbor stop by and ask what that “reddish plant” in the backyard is 😂 it definitely wasn’t what they thought it was!

Found some sweet little redish-orange flowers coming up all over the backyard in the grass. Possibly Scarlet pimpernel?
Really pretty little wild flower vine out front, comes back every year in the same spot.
The rosebush decided to have another growth spurt after her last pruning and has put on at least two feet of new growth in the last 2-3weeks. I think she's pushing 10ft tall! Knockouts aren't supposed to get quite this big, but our gal doesn't care! Her sister plant is a more modest 5ft tall right now.

I get the flowers, and i get these little things, but they never really get any bigger even when I remove them and allow time to ripen. This year I've fertilized with a supplemental potassium to see if that helps.
