Blue Hibiscus

By pamelajean
The large conspicuous showy flowers on this ornamental hibiscus shrub are trumpet-shaped with striking red centres and white pistils.
Itís a late flowering shrub that comes into its own from late summer to mid-autumn, when others are looking tired.
These plants originated in the Far East but, because winter can be harsh in their native home, they are well suited to our climate.
This lovely blue variety (alyogyne huegelii) belongs to my neighbour.

I have deviated from my gradient backgrounds and am trying some texture instead.

I was delighted with the response to my Paper Kite butterfly, and indeed with your generous response to my entire butterfly series.
