This will be our last in the series “Name That Bud.” We may run a different series next spring if we have time.
I doubt that most flower-lovers will have any difficulty in identifying this bud. It is grown as an annual in most areas of the USA but in tropical climates, it is perennial. We have several plants. This plant produces pink blooms while others produce red, white, or yellow blooms.
I will post the name of the plant (here) later today (after a break)…
OK, everyone got this one right! Marie Totora, Judith Warren-Wright, Sally Willie, and Joyce Kelley, all recognized that this is a Pink Hibiscus bud. Congratulations to all!!
And, here is a link to our previous article on the Pink Hibiscus.
