Meet Ms Flamenco


Meet Ms Flamenco.

Remember how I wanted a frilly hibiscus plant but got a normal red one (with a beautiful deep red centre) instead?

Well, a visit to World Farm last Saturday settled that "problem".

We brought home Ms Flamenco. She is a HUGE frilly hibiscus plant standing at about 1.2m tall. So big that with my macro lens, I couldn't really take a good picture of her at full size standing in my small balcony.

I named her as Flamenco, after the traditional Spanish dress, which typically comes in a strong colour like bright fire engine red and has those distinctive and rather flamboyant ruffles.

Picture from here

She is really a very pretty plant - my cell-group friend came over and commented that she looks like an apple tree, with all those big red flowers drooping over because of their weight.

Oh, I was at World Farm and saw some beautiful ones yesterday. Was tempted to buy one for myself but ended up buying a bunch of flowering plants for the school garden.
