Impossible to tell what color this hibiscus will be from the bud. What would you guess?

Hibiscus Bud and Bloom, FOTD Oct 9, 2020

Hard to believe that this is a bud from the same hibiscus plant that I published a photo of yesterday–that time a fully opened bloom. This is the picture of the bud I took yesterday.

Below is what this bud looks like today. Just a bit more unfurled and less yellow in the petals. perhaps because that yellow is just on the edges and now that it has unfurled a bit, less of it shows as it isn’t so tightly packed.

What a difference a day makes.

And below is yesterday’s hibiscus today. It is from the same plant as the bud above. Please click on first photo to enlarge all.

Once the petals are spread, they look nearly white. most of the color is on the back of the petals and only shows through when lit from behind. An intriguing flower.

Dowager Hibiscus: FOTD Aug 26, 2020


Click on this photo to increase the size of this photo of a wilting hibiscus flower. In its last stages, its petals resemble the delicate translucent skin of a very old woman and the faint tinge of its coloring deepens a bit. Beautiful at every stage.

Each stage of a flower opening has its own beauties. By tomorrow, this hibiscus bloom should be opened fully. The next day, it may have fallen to the ground. (These photos were taken on the morning of July 19 but not blogged until  the 20th at 2 a.m.) To see the same flowers ten hours later ( 24 hours after these photos were taken) go HERE.
