Hawaii Belle Hibiscus

Hawaii Belle hibiscus

Hawaii Belle Hibiscus
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Ruby Tuesday

This hibiscus variety is called Hawaii Belle.  It grew slowly for about a year after we planted it in our garden, but now that it is established, it produces a steady supply of ruffled red blossoms with ivory accents.

That's a stunning Hibiscus! I've often thought of planting Hibiscus, but I thought I'd be kind to the poor little potted plant and leave it for someone else to bring home. I love to look at them, but I sure don't have a green thumb!

Lovely photo. Love how the flower is sharp, the background blurred, but one leaf is crisp. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Oh what a beautiful hibiscus. I love the ruffles and the white streaking...

This bloom looks as if it is bungee jumping out of the plant. Looks to be in motion even if sitting still...

@ Ralph -- Now, thanks to you, I will always imagine the Hawaii Belles bungee jumping whenever I look at them in the garden. :-}

Hi Bobbie, your hibiscus is sooooo pretty. We grow them here too.
Thank you for peeking in on my baby quilts. This is a nice project for us.

Oh yes, I was expecting a sea creature but I suppose there aren't too many red amongst the blue. :-)

This is gorgeous. I lived surrounded by Hibiscus daily and this is the first one I have seen like this.

Thanks for stopping by my lightning shots. I had always wanted to try, so we played with shutter speed and the timer and finally figured it out.

I also like the ruffled look, as others said.
