Flower Photo: Fringed Hibiscus

Hibiscus schizopetalus

These delicate flowers were blooming in many locations, before the last typhoon.

One day, as the wind started picking up, I went out and rescued this one.

A black background was utilized to make the colors pop, for you.

Indoors, using available light, I shot it without any wind interference.

The flower is also known as Spider Hibiscus, Coral Hibiscus or, Japanese Lantern.

I sort of like the Latin name: Hibiscus schizopetalus

They seem to have all blown away during the last typhoon.

My guess, is that they are really hardy plants and will spring to life again soon.
