    default Tropical Hibiscus in my garden ~ Hibiscus Moonraker

    Post by Guest on Fri 08 Jul 2011, 6:51 pm

    During this last winter the Hybiscus have been flowering nicely .
    The largest of my blooms belongs to Hibiscus moonraker.




    The size is 9 inches across. it is the sort of colour that makes you feel good just to see it blooming first thing in the morning.This Hibiscus lasts 2 days during the winter ,other seasons only 1 day. Usually there is more than 1 flower blooming at a time.


    This is my garden helpers hand [ for size comparision ] who comes 3 hours a week to do heavy work I cannot manage as I am confined to the disability scooter .










    A lovely scene I discovered yesterday morning ,it set the right mood for the day.











    Last photo. for now 3 blooms facing and another facing back .This is my first post just to test if it all goes well .

    Your hibiscus are absolutely gorgeous, Pixie. :photos: The colour is so beautiful & their size is fantastic. I do love their happy cheerfulness. They would, most definitely, brighten up your day. Am trying to envisage what they would look like if you put one behind your ear, Hawaiian style. :lol: Thank you for posting these wonderful images.

    Did wonder why my hibiscus schizopetalus flowers only lasted one day, or two at the most. So this is a hibiscus trait, eh??
