Tropical Double Red Hibiscus

hibiscus flower usually has five petals (a single hibiscus). Thanks to modern cultivation techniques, some varieties can produce flowers with more than five petals – called “double hibiscus” – in a dazzling array of colors, sizes, and shapes. 

Single Hibiscus

My tropical red hibiscus in the front yard produces not only an occasional single hibiscus but also gorgeous double hibiscus flowers – it looks ruffled!

They really don’t have a fragrance, but I love the happy flowers.  My bush tries to bloom all year long if the weather is half-way warm and it gets watered.

Bright red flowers brighten the day all year long.

Wishing you blue skies and beautiful flowers.
