Hibiscus bloomed in late autumn
giant mallow, hibiscus

My hibiscus had some buds in early summer, but they fell without blooming.
One day I found a mantis on the back side of the leaf.
Summer ended before any flowers bloomed.

It had buds in September,
and bloomed in November, when the temperature is too low for it.
I have to be more careful about harmful insects especially about the mantis.
