My Single Layer Petals Yellow Hibiscus.

We came home from dinner one evening and I got out of the car to open the gate for hubby to drive in the car, From the gate I could see my yellow hibiscus plant with 3 big full bloom flowers right at the end of my side garden. I intended to go to the garden to take some snapshots of the flowers before it gets dark. But first, I needed to leave my purse in the house. Once inside the house, I totally forgot about the flowers.

Just before we lock up for the night, hubby walked to the side garden. He was able to see the hibiscus flowers because we keep the side wall light on every night. Good thing he called out to me to inform me that the hibiscus is in full bloom. Only then I remembered! I quickly went out to the garden to snap the photos because the flowers may wither by tomorrow. The following photos were all taken in the night.
 I used the flash to snap these photos.
This is the single layer yellow petals hibiscus flowers. It has deep red centre.
  The colour of the flower is yellowish orange or should I say orangey yellow.
 I get confused with the colours, Sometimes it looks more yellow than orange but sometimes it looks more orange than yellow.
 The leaves of this hibiscus plant is very different from other hibiscus.
These leaves have rounded edges with smooth and glossy surface. 
 This photo was taken without the flash from the camera. The lighting was from the side wall light.
 You can see the leaves clearer in this image. As you can see in this photo, there is another hibiscus plant on the left with leaves that have jagged edges.
 I have tried to keep this hibiscus plant shorter by trimming it hoping that it will grow more branches.
It looks like it needed another trim to reduce its height. I will wait till all the flower buds have bloomed. I was glad I took the photos in the night because there was a heavy downpour later in the night and by next morning the flowers were all closed up and drooping!

The following 3 photos were taken on different days, in bright daylight. Different flowers but of the same hibiscus plant as the above.
Here the flower looks more orange than yellow. 
 Sometimes the 5 petals are spread out. Other times the 5 petals will be over lapping as seen in the photo below.
I often take help of Stihl gardening products to take proper care of my plants and keep my garden clean and healthy. Although these products are slightly expensive, NotJustDeals Stihl coupons have helped me to grab these tools at a much lower price. And thanks to these amazing tools that I have to spend less time in maintaining my garden and plants.

Plant the good seeds of righteousness,

and you will reap a crop of my love;

plow the hard ground of your hearts,

for now is the time to seek the Lord,

that he may come and shower salvation upon you.

  2. Your yellow hibiscus is beautiful. It is difficult to define the yellow tint. It is not citrus tone, more to ocra or something. Anyway gorgeous!

  31. I have always loved yellow hibiscus! How nice that yours bloomed. It's lovely. Mine is a multi-petal variety but not doing well. Perhaps it need re-potting.

  33. Ermm hibiscus flowers only last one day anyway right? This is the only flower I happily let my kids pluck since they won't last till the next day. Other types are meant to be left on the plant, unless there are a lot of them (in which case they can pick ONE hehe)

    1. Most kids love to pluck pretty flowers. So for the prized flowers, make sure you place them out of the kid's reach. Lol!
