Princess Michiko Hibiscus
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
This is the Princess Michiko hibiscus, another of the 28 varieties of hibiscus in my garden. Most of our hibiscus varieties bloom continuously, but the Princess Michiko only blooms now and then (like the Ecstasy hibiscus, which I posted back in April). The Princess Michiko blossom is much more complex than most hibiscus flowers.
