Today's Flowers - Hibiscus

The Hibiscus is a beautiful tropical flower. It is the national flower of Malaysia. It has special significance for Indians as it is mentioned in ancient books .
This pale pink hibiscus looks delicious.

The sunny yellow hibiscus cheers one up on gloomy days.


The Japanese Lantern, Hibiscus schizopetalus always looks towards the ground.



This hibiscus flower lasts for two days!
This is my entry for Flowers for Today, thank you team!

  2. 2 days? They only last one day for me. Only on cloudy cool days the flowers will last another day but very rare case for me.

    The yellow one is certainly cheerie.

    And, I like the last one most ;-) Have a great weekend!

  3. Great selection you've shown here. Love the Japanese Lantern ... I have an enormous arching shrub of that one and it never fails to catch my eye!

    Love the new header photo as well ... it's a stunner.

  4. Sylvia, Thank you.
    Stephanie, yes only those particular hibiscus last 2 days. The others last only one day.
    Bernie, I too like the Japanese Lantern. Your arch must be very pretty.

  6. This is the first time that I've seen that yellow hibiscus, the petals are different from the usual hibiscus that I have seen. If I have seen it, I would not have guessed that it's from the hibiscus family.
