MY RED LANTERNS


Will you say my Hibiscus such as red lantern?
This is Kembang Sepatu Gantung (Hibiscus schizopetalus), an old fashion plant and usually grown as hedge with intensive prunning.
But in my garden I let the branches grow here and there.
Just beautiful...
The long slim branches grow and so many flowers bear on each end everyday.
Although just a simple plant, but so lovely.

  2. Salam Endah,

    Cantik sekali warna nya ya? Di sini ia dipanggil Bunga Raya. Masih belum pernah lihat Bunga Raya kaya gini.

    1. Salam Honey,
      Saya yakin bunga ini banyak tumbuh di Malaysia. Ini memang bunga kampung jaman dulu.=, sekarang jarang yang menanamnya,

  5. Hi Endah, I have never seen a Hibiscus schizopetalus and to me it doesn't just look like a simple plant. I think, it is quite stunning! The photos of the flowers emerging from a bud are quite fascinating. Thanks for sharing! Wishing you a nice rest of the week!

    1. You're welcome, Christina! This flower is an 'ignored plant'. Actually this plant is a 'country' flower, because this plant is usually grown on village as a hedge. But for me every plants is interesting. They all have special 'thing'.

  6. Bila tengok bunga raya jenis ni, teringat dekat arwah nenek. Dia panggil bunga ni dengan nama bunga raya ayam bulu balik. Sebenarnya kak dah biasa dengan bunga ni dari kecil2 lagi. Ini bunga orang dulu dulu. Cantik kan?

    1. Dulu, tanaman ini saya tanam dari cutting, saya ambil dari tanaman liar di pinggir jalan, tak lama kemudian tunas tunas bermunculan dan bunga pun ikut mekar setiap hari tiada henti.
