  6. Those are just amazing, Autumn Belle! To think of flowers that large and the plant that must support them is mind boggling. Thanks for sharing. :-)

  9. I'm so used to seeing hibiscus in gardens here that my mind normally skips past them. Seeing your photos just reminded me why they're so much in demand and have so many people drooling over them. Totally justified!

  13. Fabulous shots Autumn Belle! The hibiscus blossoms are HUGE. There are several bushes outside my work that have been blooming for quite a long time. I love to gaze at them as I walk by. It's a nice invite to work.

  15. I love how those white ones look so much like the Brazilian rock rose of the same family. It is like a "mini-me" of the larger hibiscus, only its reproductive parts are burgundy instead of white.

  19. Terima kasih for taking these photos and posting them so I can enjoy them.
    Hibiscus are brilliant in their color and form.
    I see you took these in a park and nursery; do you grow any?

  20. Bangchik, I agree with you that the stigma is shorter. It is also fatter.

    Kiki, these are not from my garden.

    Thank you so much for the visits and lovely comments. These hibiscus are indeed eye-catching and they really stand out. The flowers in the 3rd and 4th picture are from the nursery and it was what attracted customers like me to go and have a peek. I ended up buying something else there. The flowers has a sturdy stalk to support them and even the leaves are large, quite different from that of the common hibiscus. I doubt that these jumbos can survive long in my garden, therefore I didn’t buy them.

    Stephanie, the red hibiscus has strong and thick petals while the white one’s petals are very thin and fragile. That’s why it is folded.

    Meredith, thanks for the information on Brazilian rock rose. Today I learnt a new plant.

    Calico, Snowcatcher,Rainfield61, Welcome to my blog and thank you very much for the nice comments.

    Terra, Welcome to my blog. Yes, I have 3 hibiscus plants in my garden. I am growing the rosa sinensis brilliant red, the true Malaysian national flower like the one you see at my top sidebar. To read the previous post on my hibiscus, you can click on the picture there. The 2nd plant has variegated leaves and a lighter shade of red flower petals. The 3rd plant has larger bright red flowers with orange outlines.

    Now, I truly understand why our first Prime Minister selected the hibiscus. I love the common type as well as the variants too.
