Perspectives on a Red Hibiscus

I was attracted to the Double Red Hibiscus in the conservatory in Huntington, WV. We did not take the time to visit the extensive system of nature trails there, but did drive through the neighborhood where we saw some lovely homes and parkland.

Hibiscus (Malvaceae family)


  1. What a stunning colour. Love these flowers.

  2. So sweet flower! love it.
    my new post.

  3. The red of these flowers is remarkable - I had an old friend who told me that they use these plants for garden hedges in South Africa - they must look good!

  5. Love these red hibiscus, I grew up with them growing everywhere and love this glimpse!
