Colorful Hibiscus Flowers
Hibiscus Flowers come in many Beautiful Colors
I love Hibiscus flowers. They come in so many bright and cheerful colors!
When we were in Florida this past year I became obsessed with photographing Hibiscus flowers. I'd photograph them after a rain shower, in the morning, and in the evening. I would have my husband pull off the road to photograph a variety of hibiscus that I had not seen before. It was great fun seeing how many different photographs I could capture.
In all I took several hundred photos...and although I promise not to share them all in this lens :) ...I will share some of my favorites.

Beautiful Double Orange Hibiscus
I love the bright peach color of this double Hibiscus.
This beautiful hibiscus was blooming outside our condo in Florida in March. It must be wonderful to live where these beautiful flowers thrive all year long.
Interesting Information on the Hibiscus Flower
Hibisucus State Flower
In researching the Hibiscus plant I found that it is the state flower of Hawaii and the national flower of Malaysia. The Hibiscus plant is one of the most popular and widely planted shrubs in the tropics. Most of the flowers only last one day, although some varieties might last for 2-3 days. Hibiscus plants love warm temperatures and thrive in tropical and subtropical regions. I found them to be abundant in southern Florida. The place where we were staying had hibiscus bushes surrounding the entire comples. There were red, peach, pink and yellow flowers. Very beautiful!

Enjoy Hibiscus in the Midwest
Hibiscus in the Midwest
This pretty pink hibiscus was taken by my neighbors mailbox in Missouri. Although hibiscus are a tropical flower they can do quite well during the summer months in the midwest.
Single Peach Hibiscus
This flower is a pretty shade of orange.
I love the way this white Hibiscus looks against the dark foliage. I came back to photograph this in the early evening to get just the right light for the photo.
