  1. I took these on vacation in NC. My wife would like to try them in our garden but we have no idea what they are.

    I can see them fine. The first is some kind of Hibiscus. The second is a passion flower . Locally they're called maypops. The passion flowers are easy to grow, at least in SE Louisiana.

    Passion flowers grow wild here in Florida.

    The red and white is one type of hibiscus I have never seen, if it is one.
    The leaves are to different
    Super shots

    The red plant is a swamp hibiscus. They are hardy zones 7-9, and grow to be about 5' - 8' tall. They are usually found in water gardening stores, considered to be a shallow water tropical. Most of these plants can be put in the ground but need a fair amount of water. Hopefully this link will work. http://www.watergarden.org/s.nl/it.A/id.634/.f
