Those prices you mention are outrageous; is there not a small friendly Plant Nursery in your area that is not part of a big chain, or search out plant auctions on the internet

I have an Hibiscus on the strip of land just outside my fence. Years ago I was told the Hibiscus need water more than heat, my one gets watered by me about every 2 years and I live in one of the driest parts of the country. It is poor soil out there with, I think, good drainage. It gets sun from around 2 or 3 pm on. ..and it not only survives, but flourishes.

Wow, what a sunset!
