Hibiscus Beauty in December

Plants are usually quite drab this time of year but sometimes something impressive happens. After the Hibiscus spent the spring, summer and fall outside without a single bloom, we brought it inside to protect it from the cold. It bloomed almost immediately and now it has a second bloom and several more buds.
On a less successful note all the poinsettias I planted out front in the spring are looking very sad. I was hoping they would go out with a blaze of red but t looks like they will just die. So much for that plan.
