Hibiscus | Along the Garden Path

by Jim and Melanie

Our walking path takes us by the garden of a neighbor who has many Hibiscus plants nearby. We check on each pass to see which ones are in bloom. Their flowers are large and showy. Each is about 6 inches (15 cm) across. Some are deep red, pink, and white with different combinations.

The link provided here has many interesting facts, a list of the many species, and photos of many of them.

    These are beautiful. Of course they grow well down here, and come in yellow, salmon, white, and varigated, as well as double-ruffled. The petals on these are interesting. I don’t remember seeing that pattern before — the parallel lines that give them the appearance of being pleated. Very attractive.

    Lovely images of these beautiful flowers, Jim. We have one Hibiscus, a Lady Baltimore, which is a rich red. I especially enjoy the contrast between the red tightly wrapped petals as it starts to open and the the green sepals enclosing the buds. Our leaves take a real beating from something I have yet to identify, but the flowers seem to do just fine despite the carnage.
