Hibiscus

I recently spotted this very large hibiscus bloom in a color and shape I hadn’t seen before. Since there are hundreds of types of hibiscus, I have no idea what the name of this one is, but I think must be rather tasty to the local insect community because it appears to have been munched on by something with a hearty appetite.

very pretty variations in color for this hibiscus.

This is indeed an unusual variety of hibiscus. In addition to the insects, I bet the hummingbirds like it too.
