Simplest Flower: Hibiscus

"Mom, hibiscus!"

I was so thrilled when Naomi pointed my attention to the healthy hibiscus bushes thriving in the corner near the entrance to our new neighborhood. The flowers are so big and with vibrant colors.

I love hibiscus! It is the simplest flower for me. 

In Malaysia, being it's national flower, it is called Bunga Raya (Bunga = flower, Raya = great). 
I grew up calling it gumamela.


  1. Hibiscus really are beautiful. I like the yellow very much.

  2. And the hibiscus petal is so healthy! Love your photo. For more about the the health benefits check out my article. The tea can help to lower your blood pressure among other things.

  3. Ahh!! We have the same flower entry! hehehe.. The hibiscus flower! It really is very beautiful.. Simple and lovely. =)

    Please check out mine, too. I'd really appreciate it if you could also drop a comment. =)


  4. I miss seeing hibiscus growing in the neighborhood where I use to live. They really are a striking flower. Pretty shots. I need to get something posted for Ruby Tuesday :0)

  5. Beautiful!

    I played too. Mine are here and here.

  6. Gorgeous photos. They really are beautiful flowers.

  7. These are such beautiful flowers. It amazes me to see them in other parts of the world, which makes our globe seem smaller! My brother had many in his garden this year in northern Colorado. I plan to have some next year to replace ones that didn't make it through our harsh winter last year. ♥♫
