Wow..Wee, my Hibiscus is Blooming



I call this my Whowee hibiscus flower....its just a crazy combination of orange/red to yellow, they celebrate their short lived displays of color with gusto!


Say hello to hibiscus Chad, I purchased this from a local hibiscus grower who creates some amazing combinations and hybrids of hibiscus plants in Hawaii.  I will have to make a post on my visit to this grower.


Nothing truly spells out tropical like this hibiscus flower, it exudes hot colors and a wild streaks of red/orange to yellow patches, like the brilliant sunset colors we have in Hawaii.

Dear Noel, I can feel the heat continents away!! What a marvellously vibrant flower colour and how well it would fit into the 'hot' borders we so strive to create in England, where the skies are so often grey, and fail.

Hi Noel

I was on holiday in Norfolk Island and took this series of Photos of Hibiscus. I had to reduce the size of the pics to put them on Flickr but worth a look
