While my Hibiscus (Emily) flowers all year round, she seem to put on a brighter appearance once spring has arrived. This is a new flower just starting to open yesterday morning.
I am leaving later today for a festival being held at Karuah over the weekend. I will not be able to comment till probably next Monday.
