Shadowy Pink Hibiscus

Shadowy Hibiscus

Breaking through the surrounding dark, a fully-bloom pink hibiscus makes a strong statement. It is easy to understand why hibiscus are loved around the planet–large, yet intricate details, bright colors, telltale stamen, and soft character.

Also known as a rose mallow, hibiscus blooms are found across the globe, having hundreds of varieties. They are sometimes used for making tea, paper, food coloring, garnish, and even food (dried hibiscus).
