Hibiscus Flower

orange hibiscus flower

Hibiscus flower IMG 5905 - The wide range of colours and forms of hibiscus flowers make these shrubs popular with many gardeners, but this Hawaiian cultivar, which has been growing in the photographer's garden for so many years that it's name has been forgotten, is as good as it gets. Its spectacular flowers are a welcome addition to the landscape, and when its buds open there's always a surprise in store, for although every flower is brightly coloured, their variety is astounding. Some have a mass of petals, others have only a single layer. Some are salmon red, others are a vivid orange colour, and some have multiple streaks that display all the colours of a gaudy sunset.
