Blooming this week: Gardenias
Gardenias tend to bloom in flushes in early summer and then sporadically throughout the season. There are some exceptions like "Chuck Hayes" which usually sends out blooms all at once in early summer and then does not bloom again for the season. As far as hardy hibiscus goes it looks like "Summer Snow" has the most spread in its blooming habits which is great! This is my first year with it so it has yet to prove itself in terms of hardiness. But I will say that the very bold leaves and huge blooms has me excited that it could be hardy and very worried that it is not!
