Hibiscus rosa-sinensis Cultivars - Single Flower Yellow with Red Eye

Scientific name: Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cultivars

 Common name: Hibiscus
Family: Malvaceae
Origin: Hort.

Category: Evergreen free flowering shrub
Photo taken at: My home garden

Most hibiscus flowers last only a day but this one lasts 2 days. It closes on the first evening but open again on the second day before it closes again and wither of - just like the water lily. It is a compact shrub, mine is 0.6 m (2 ft) tall but the flowers are large, about 10-12 cm diameter. It has beautiful dark green, oval-shaped leaves.

This is my entry for Today's Flowers # 135, a meme which opens every Sunday, 2pm GMT. My grateful thanks to Today's Flowers team members; Luiz Santili Jr, Denise in Virginia, Laerte Pupo and Sandy Carlson. To participate and view other gorgeous flowers around the world, click here


  1. Beautiful combination of colours! I seldom see the yellow hibiscus here.

  2. Lovely! Reminds me of a pure yellow hibiscus that I lost to last summer heat... [sigh]

  3. Hibiscos de duas cores são lindos, e nesta foto ficou muito melhor!


Yay! You like flowers too.
