Well, it's time for me to leave Florida now and return home to the UK, but I got up really early this morning and decided to go hibiscus hunting. I couldn't believe how many of these magnificent flowers I found and they come in every shape and colour!
Glorious white in the morning light
Mellow yellow, with a bright red heart
Gorgeous pale pink....
Darker pink with a blood red veins....
Blood red - the colour of your heart
I'm sorry to say that I know nothing about hibiscus at all except that they are incredibly lovely flowers and I've really enjoyed looking at them during my time here, so I thought it might be helpful to give you some addresses, if you'd like to know more about them.
The American Hibiscus Society is based right here in Florida; there's also an International Hibiscus Society and in Australia, there's the Hibiscus Society of Queensland. I'm sorry if I've missed out on other major societies, but I'm sure you'll let me know and in the meantime ... happy hibiscus hunting for all of those who are interested and I'll be posting again once I get home to England.
