A 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.
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.
