Is it me or is it a funny time of year for a hibiscus  to blossom? It just opened this week. It was brought in from the patio about six weeks ago and has not flowered in 15 or so months. I don't get it!

Gideon, that isn't a magnolia, it's a hibiscus flower. They actually bloom all winter when exposed to sun. But beware, they can get infested with bugs really easily.
