When I visited a local library last weekend, my attention was drawn to the flower bed ouside the front door; specifically to this bright yellow blossom. I believe it to be a 'tender' hibiscus; that is, one that does not survive the cold of our winter here. To have blooms of this sort the following year, you have to put in new plants, or find a way to over-winter the plant in a greenhouse.
