Canna or Canna lily are one of the most popular garden plants beside orchid and hibiscus. These tropical flowers can be seen during my old days where I was bought up in the village near Ipoh. Many residents like to grow these plants because of it’s beauty and color.

Although Canna or Canna Lily are of the tropics, most cultivars have been developed in temperate climates and are easy to grow in most countries of the world as long as they can enjoy about 6 hours average sunlight during the summer.

The photos were taken at the  Tanah Rata’s park, Cameron Highland recently.The species Canna or Canna Lily has two color, red and yellow. I am not sure if there are any more color of these beautiful species.

 Sometimes, they are also grown as potted plants. Photo taken with Canon 70-200mm F2.8 zoom lense.

These are some pictures I took in the Hibiscus Garden. I kept them in my computer for quite sometime and I am not 100% sure if these flowers belong to any of the hibiscus species. It looks different from the previous flower pictures that I posted

The hibiscus plants in the Hibiscus Garden are planted with well-planned landscaping to beautify the garden. I noticed that there are quite a number of hibiscus flowers of various varieties and of different sizes, shapes and colors.

This particular flowering plant is seen creeping on the wood frames just in front of the office, and the little flowers grow closely together in clusters to form a drooping garland. When I looked carefully, the flower has five petals, a stigma just like a hibiscus flower, the only difference is that it is smaller in size. The colorful flower is a combination of yellowish-orange and red.

I hope I am right as these flower pictures were photographed in the compound from the Hibiscus Garden.

The hibiscus plant can be grown easily, and is found almost anywhere in this country even in the highlands where the weather is cooler.They can be found in public parks, private compounds, pathways or roadsides.

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 noticed that there are quite a number of hibiscus flowers of various varieties and of different sizes, shapes and colors planted in the pots for sale in Cactus Point, Cameron Highlands during my recent holiday visit. .

I think the weather is the important factor as I found the flowers in Cameron Highlands are bigger and rich in color, and the plant is much healthier with much bigger and greener leaves. It looks different from the Bunga Raya planted in our garden.
