Pretty picture: Hibiscus rosa-sinensis bud


I'm not saying that Hibiscus flower buds are anywhere near as pretty as Hibiscus flower flowers are, but I bet you we'd still grow Hibiscus even if the buds were all we ever got.

One word - exquisite.

Wow. I never stopped to admire a hibiscus bud before - I was always too impatient for it to get to the flower stage. This is every bit as lovely as a rosebud! Nice photo!

How's the neck doing?

The neck has basically been back to normal since last Friday or Saturday.

These hibiscus bud photos are AMAZING, Mr. Subjunctive! But now I'm dying to see the opened bloom!

Kind of makes it clear why "rosa" is part of the name, doesn't it?

Yep

I agree with you. I just love seeing those buds and them watching them uncurl.
