Is this another species of hibiscus flower ?

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.

A visit to Kuala Lumpur Orchid Garden


I visited the Kuala Lumpur Orchid Garden which is located in the Lake Gardens of Kuala Lumpur. It is just in front of the Bird Park.

I walked leisurely around the garden to look and admire the beautiful exotic orchids of various species in the garden.

In the Orchid Garden there are water fountains, a lotus pond and an Orchid Shop. The shop provides lots of choices of orchids for orchid enthusiasts. I found the prices reasonable. You should visit the shop (located inside the garden) if you visit this place…

Trees surround the garden which is on higher ground and this makes the scene here more beautiful with Kuala Lumpur city at the backdrop. Many tourists were taking photos here which is behind the Petronas Twin Towers and Menara Kuala Lumpur. Some visitors were reading books under the shelter and it was really relaxing.

Kuala Lumpur orchid garden opens everyday from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm. On public holiday and weekend, there is an entrance fee. The current fees is RM1.00/person (applicable for 12 Years old and above ).For weekdays, there are no entrance free

I regretted not coming in the morning as the afternoon sun was hot in the midday. All at a sudden threatening black clouds darkened the sky. It was going to rain so I took some of these photos quickly. I intend to come again more prepared for the next visit.
