Gotta Love This Schitzo Flower I Came Across

red, Japanese Lantern, flower

Flowers Named Japanese Lanterns Are Called Hibiscus Schitzopetalus



That's not me poking fun at the things, either.

Locally, they are called Chochinbana (チョチンバナ) meaning, Japanese Lantern.

Unlike, hundreds of other hibiscus flowers, facing the sun, these ones hang down.

They have frilly petals and, a funny looking tail, hangs out of them.

Learn more about these plants, uses and care at the links below.
