  9. My hardy hybiscus, Rose Mallow, is blooming now - it's about 5' tall

    and is sitting on a ledge in my plant pond, benefiting from fish water that comes through there on the way back to the main pond. I got 2 ore hardy hybiscus plants today and hope they'll do as well....

    They're all gorgeous, Kat! I love Wanvisa - every bloom on mine is different. Some have been exactly like the one you show but I had one recently that was yellow on one side and coral on the other!

    I love the baskets, but I'm afraid they wouldn't work for me due to the dreaded string algae which would grow on the mesh and eventually clog it. Also, my pond is only 12' x 12' s 4; and my fish are...

  24. Thank goodness for Barley straw extract and sodium percarbonate! The string algae is
