'Sahara Wind' Hibiscus
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
This brilliantly colored tropical hibiscus variety is called Sahara Wind. It grows in our garden in Hawaii. It features golden-yellow petals and dark red in its throat, shading to a sort of magenta. The blossoms usually last just a day, but as each one dies and falls to the ground a new one opens to replace it elsewhere on the shrub.
