Hardy Hibiscus Question...
I know there is a forum all its own for hibiscus, but it doesn't seem to get much traffic so I thought I'd try my question here.
I'm growing two types of hardy hibiscus, Torchy and Crown Jewels, both by Fleming. The Crown Jewels seems to be growing great, but has only produced one bloom and doesn't look to be producing any more. The Torchy has grown okay and did have one bloom earlier in the summer (July-ish) but the poor bloom was so heat/sun scorched that it barely lasted the day.
My concern is that they are both growing in a space that gets nice morning sun and then all afternoon shade (poor planning for that bed on my part!). I've read that Torchy should grow to about 4 feet but it's barely 2 1/2. I wonder if the low amount of sun has led to the stubby-ness of Torchy and the lack of blooms in both. I will mention that they have only been in the ground at my home for a year, so I guess that could be an issue as well.
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
