Wet Ecstasy

'Ecstasy' hibiscus

'Ecstasy' hibiscus variety
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Our garden has an automatic irrigation system, but once in awhile my husband uses a hose to rinse the dust from the leaves of the plants.   I grabbed my point-an-shoot camera and snapped this photo of an 'Ecstasy' hibiscus blossom right after such a dousing.   I think the hibiscus liked getting sprinkled.

Thanks, everyone. This hibiscus variety is one of our favorites, too.

Becky, I hope you're able to fend off the Japanese beetles!
