Dear Sugar
I would like to plant some flowers in the small garden in the front of my house. I am looking for something low maintenance that will add color. I've got lots of sunlight but unfortunately lots of wind too. Do you know of anything pretty that can withstand these conditions? Green Thumb Gracie

Dear Green Thumb Gracie
Hibiscus are beautiful, full and they come in lots of colors. They also bloom and thrive in the full heat of the summer. Depending on where you live, you might want to wait another month or so until it's really warm. The most common hibiscus is the large Rose Mallow Hibiscus. It is a perennial plant that needs 2-3 inches of mulch, plenty of sunshine, but does not need to be watered daily. I think hibiscus is a great flower for you.
