Hibiscus schizopetalus 'Pagoda' - Wordless Wednesday


“Hibiscus schizopetalus 'Pagoda' - Wordless Wednesday”, a copyrighted post, was written for My Nice Garden blog by Autumn Belle @ on Aug 24th 2011.







  1. I have never seen this hibiscus variety before. Double bloom? Interesting, is this a hybrid?

  2. This is indeed and interesting type of Hibiscus, its like a two-in-one flower.

  3. Diana and Solitude Rising, it is an intermediate form that looks like a cross between Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and Hibiscus schizopetalus.

    The flowers are semi-pendulous and petals semi-fringed.

    When I first saw it I thought it was a 2-in-1 flower with single (bottom) and double (top) flower petal arrangements. I also thought it looked like a lion's head.

    The origin of this species is uncertain. Burkill, the English botanist says that it is a result of hybridisation between H. rosa-sinensis and H. schizopetalus. Another theory says that it is an extreme form of the ancient H. rosa-sinensis. (info from Dr. Francis Ng's book)

  4. that second one especially.

  5. That is so lovely, is that yours too? I saw an orange hibiscus with that style of flower form, but not noticed not all flowers in the same plant have the same tiered form. What about in that plant? I am about to post it last time, but when i am about to post it, i saw you just had posted the orange one that same day, so i aborted my post. If only the variegated one will flower like that, it must be more beautiful.

  6. This plant is growing at the Ditch Garden in my neighbourhood. The flowers from the same plant look the same here. I have photographed them at different angles. I think the flowers are very odd and unique, a double delight, like Indrani says.

  7. Very pretty. I don't I've ever seen this type of flower before.

    Happy #WW & don't forget to share your linky over at my blog :)

  8. I never seen this variety before! They look so pretty - double layer flowers!

  9. Dazediva, Bananaz, Malar, I'm sure these are unique and will be great conversation material for the garden visitors.

  10. I've never seen such hibiscus here, they are so pretty and unique!

  11. Simply amazing!! I've never seen a double hibiscus before..beautiful!

  12. It is a wonderful flower - such a beautiful colour.

  13. Now that is a stunner! Great color!

  14. Hi Autumn Belle! Lovely flowers you got there! I got a similar hibiscus but with a lighter hue and just learned that it is called a "pagoda". Thanks! Be happy.

  15. This is probably actually the hybrid Hibiscus x 'El Capitolio', there is also a Salmon form of El Capitolio as well.

    1. Anonymous, it does look like the Red El Capitolio Hibiscus. My grateful thanks to the information!
