Glorious Hibiscus

Even now in early winter, the Hibiscus are still in bloom.

This one grows in our front garden. It came from a cutting, many years ago. The parent plant has not survived, but this one soldiers on, giving liberally of its delightful flowers.

Though short-lived, each flower holds such beautiful colours and textures.

Sydney’s climate allows such an array of flora to grow and flourish.

    Keep mentioning Flora like this and Fauna will get awfully jealous. That’s a stunning picture Margaret, beautifully taken.

    That’s lovely I adore hibiscus. One of my other commenters recently told me you could take cuttings and I still keep forgetting to do it. Another told me about making hibiscus tea.

      Yes, you can strike Hibiscus cuttings. They have such pretty flowers! I don’t know about the Hibiscus tea, though. šŸ™‚
