Hibiscus, the Chinese Rose

Hibiscus_rosa-sinensis

One of the nicest flowers that I know has to be the Hibiscus. The plant grows as a bush or as a small evergreen tree. There are some 200 varieties known of the Hibiscus; the plant growing here in Mallorca is the Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. The magnificent flowers are up to 15 cm in diameter with colours ranging from pink to white, and from yellow to red.

The Spanish call this plant Rosa de China (Chinese Rose), whilst the Mallorcans call it Hibiscus de Xina. The plant is in full bloom now; flowers are out from April through to September. If you own a Mediterranean garden, the Hibiscus is a must, even though it is not native here but hails from East Asia.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: July 7th, 2009. The time was 12:25:41.
