I had to buy this new hibiscus plant with the largest blooms I’ve ever seen. This photo was taken a day or more past its prime, so the petals are curled back so it is smaller than it was two days ago. This first photo is a macro, but . . .
zooming out and holding my hand up indicates its approximate size, although before it curled up it was at least 4 inches larger across!
Sitting at my desk I just looked up and realized I have a perfect side view angle, even though I am 20 feet away with window glass in between us. Here is the shot I just took:
And, surprise of surprises, here is the exact same flower the next day. You’ll be able to better get an idea of its size: https://judydykstrabrown.com/2016/08/11/another-go-at-the-giant-hibiscus-flower-of-the-day-aug-11-2016/
