Speechless Sunday: Hibiscus In Bloom

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We have two tall hibiscus bushes that face each other from opposite corners of our fenced deck area.  Hibiscus is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. The genus is quite large, comprising several hundred species that are native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Wikipedia

 

This is the time of the year when hibiscus are profusely blooming from the lowest branches to the top.  Each time we come out on our deck, we marvel at the beauty of this flower.

 

"The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life."

~ Jean Giraudoux

 

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday Ron and Alexandra-- we had so many lovely hibiscuses in our yards in Delray Beach. If I remember correctly, they were especially loved by the iguanas!!!

Hi Alexandra... sadly, my hibiscus this year has produced only about six flowers all season! Lots of leaves and lush, but no flowers!

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I can see why you took a picture of that hibiscus. It is picture-perfect.  There are a few plants in our neighborhood blooming.  It always reminds me of Hawaii for some reason. Have a great week.

Hi Ron and Alexandra,  Thanks for brightening up my day with the fantastic picture of the hibiscus.  Now we just need technology to transmit the fragrance along with the picture.

That's such a lovely color of Hibiscus.  I planted my first one last autumn.  It's a pretty golden yellow color, which has had the most beautiful blooms.  I think I want one the same hue as your's pictured!

Morning Alexandra.

I know we have had those in the past.  Right now, I don't remember if she has them this year.  It's still dark outside, so I'll check later

They are beautiful. I can't remember, is Hibiscus also Rose of Sharon? If so, I have a white one in bloom right now - the deer spared the blossoms this year. It's so pretty.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Thank you for that tidbit.  I looked up Rose of Sharon, and learned that it is another name for hibiscus.  A

James Dray They are a perennial, in other words, the plants stays in the garden year round.

Kathy Streib Do iguanas munch on hibiscus, or just hang out near them?  Quincy would have a field day, if we had iguanas. A

Nina Hollander you need to have a serious conversation with your hibiscus.  I threatened one my lemon trees with expulsion, and it started blooming like crazy...Seriously, I would suggest some flowering bush fertilizer.  I do that for mine ever 4 months.  A

What a gorgeous color!  Living in California, you must get really spoiled when it comes to blooms.
