A Hibiscus Called 'Ecstasy'


'Ecstasy' Hibiscus
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Ruby Tuesday

Most of the hibiscus varieties in out garden bloom more or less continuously, but this cultivar blooms at irregular intervals.  'Ecstasy' is the name of this hibiscus.  We have two plants of this variety.

How wonderful it must be to have beautiful blossoms all year long. I shall think of that during our long, cold snowy winter months! Your flower photo is beautiful.

Dear Bobbie,
I am fascinated by the rich flora of Hawaii.
Hibiscus by us is an indoor plant, and even in our living room only blooming once a year.
You sure do know how to present your chosen item flourishing.
