A little more. I guess you can create the picture in your mind.
She blooms once in three weeks or about once a month. It is a long wait, but when she does, you should see it to believe it. Well then see it.
The beauty is just captivating. I always spend a long time staring at this plant to cherish the structure of this flower. Her yellow petals with the color changing slow to white, pink and then red towards the center just makes me drool over this flower. The stamen is no less beautiful. It is so long and colorful and complements the rest of the flower so well.
I wish I could find a way to make this plant bloom more often.
This is a hybrid variety of the hibiscus. These do not bloom as quickly as the regular once that I mentioned in my earlier post Hibiscus Experience - Part I. The flowers have thicker petals and they are larger in size. The structure of the leaves also vary from one hybrid variety to another. Next time, I will make a measurement of the flower diameter before I post a picture.
The best thing happened in the middle of Febrauary. I got two flowers at the same time. That was like hitting a jackpot. I would have gotten more but the pigeons got to the buds before they could bloom.
Well I also managed to capture this one at various stages. I wish I could have done more, especially during the bloom, but had to leave for work. By the time I was back home in the evening, the flower had reached full bloom and had started shrivelling back.
Am expecting the next bloom within the next couple of weeks.
