The other red hibiscus

I've long since lost the tag for this one. I purchased the plant last summer on clearance. I divided it over the winter, but only one survived. The blooms are 12" across. I need to give it more sun. The Japanese Beetles are doing a number on the leaves this year.

Speaking of sun, the gully receives a lot more early morning light.

This fall I will have to do something about the ivy, periwinkle, and trees from "heaven". I've tried RoundUp in the past to no avail.

Slash and burn buddy, slash and burn. The plants you mention are real buggers to get out. I wonder if mowing it all down and then covering/smothering it would do the trick? By the way that new view in the morning light is quite lovely.
