Re: Red Shield Hibiscus

YEAH!!!!!   I'm so happy for you Ceres.  SO your Red shield is the same as 
the one I have, the winter bloomer.  Mine is in full bloom now, or pretty 
close.  There is no fragrance to the blooms, but it does look great when they 
are all open.  I doubt that the temperature differences will affect it at 
all.  Drastic temp changes from the 40's to the 80's don't seem to bother 
mine in the least.  We have been in the high 70's and low 80's for the past 
week or more, but before that had a cold spell that dropped us to the high 
30's at night, high 50's/low 60's in day.  No bud drop, no leaf droop or drop 
as in other hibiscus,  in fact it seems to liven the plant up even more.

Thanks for sharing the info!!!
