The different species of hibiscus flowers.

I walked into the office of hibiscus garden which is next to the Orchid Garden located at the Lake Garden. Many pictures of hibiscus flowers and landscape of the garden were displayed.

A clerk was there and she explained to me that about 200 species of hibiscus are known to exist, and each species has its own uniqueness. However, all hibiscus flowers share certain features.

I walked around the garden to look for colorful hibiscus flowers and to take photograph. I noticed that there are quite a number of hibiscus flowers of various varieties and of different sizes, shapes and colors.

The hibiscus plants also vary in height, some are tall and some short shrubs. Some grown on the ground while some grown in pots. They are planted with well-planned landscaping to beautify the garden.

I enjoyed the leisure walk along the endless rows and paths of these beautiful blooms. There were some foreign visitors here too, sitting on the bench reading on this fine morning in the serenity of the lush greenery of this garden with the chirping of birds, buzzing busy bees and fluttering butterflies

The color combinations are fabulous. Some have single petals, others double or crested, and some do not open fully. Sizes vary from tiny to 5-6 inches.

I don’t know the names of these beautiful hibiscus flower perhaps we can identify them by colors like red, orange, yellow, white, lavender, and brown as these are the basic colors.

These are some of the hibiscus flowers that I photographed. The pink hibiscus flower is not looking ideal as the only one that I can find. Their sizes are medium about 3-4 inches and I will post more in the next posting.
