The Hibiscus Flower.

Some of you from the US, has written to me about wanting to see the Hibiscus flowers found in Malaysia. I have taken photos of the flower that I have come across in the last few days and I hope you find it interesting.

More than 200 species of hibiscus are known to exist.
The red five petal Hibiscus rosa sinensis is the national flower of Malaysia and grows in abundance all over the country.

It is common to find the Hibiscus plant as a popular household flowering plant and along roads and highways in Malaysia although it is not native and originates from China .

This constantly flowering garden shrub with its many colors and forms takes the place of the standard rose in many Malaysian gardens.

Hibiscus is from the Mallow family. Its flowers are bisexual.

It is one of the most common flowering plant you can find in Malaysia and over the years, many crossbreed species have become available.
