So Pretty In "Coral"...

Hibiscus is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae.
 
It's blooms are quite large and vibrant. 
 
Hibiscus contain several hundred species
that are native to warm-temperate,
subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world.

It's a very popular flower here at the Jersey Shore
and I thought this was a beautiful color!

  5. Your photos are gorgeous, when I look at them, it feels like I am right there enjoying their beauty. Thank you for sharing them with us. Our flowers are all pretty burned up here in Missouri. This heat and no rain for two weeks has turned them brown and dried the leaves and petals. Even though I drag my waterhose around and keep them moist, the 98 degree heat and burning sun has cooked them. It is supposed to cool off a little today, maybe we will also get some much needed rain.
