  1. Oh, that is really a beauty, I've never seen one like this before, or may be I haven't noticed.
    Have a nice evening :)

  2. Vilken annorlunda färg - man brukar mest se de röda som krukväxt. Makrobilden är fantastisk.

  3. Marvellous hibiscus, reminds me of my tree peony in the same colours. Now I'm longing for spring (already...)
    Have a nice evening!

  6. Stunning shots! I love the dark colour in the middle of the blossom. It's so dark it almost looks black.

  12. This hibiscus is way far prettier than the ones that grew in our yard grown yup in south Florida. It is so unusual, and your capture of it shows so many details. Lovely photography. Thanks so much for your visit to my blog. genie

    1. Thanks Genie :-)) I photographed this Hibiscus at the National Botanical Gardens, here in Wales. They have many many examples of flowers that are not normally found in the UK, and many are grown in the enormous Great Glasshouse.
