I planted hibiscus along the road at the front of the property some 12 years ago. They grew nicely for a few years and then began to look scraggly and deteriorate. Mealy bugs attacked them and several times I had to cut them back severely. They looked awful for several years and one day after getting tired of glaring at them every time I passed I decided to something about it. So in 2009 with the assistance of my garden helper we dug them out!
Voila! The results three years later with thirty nine palms and frangipani.
A prettier view for all who drive along this road.
