TODAY'S FLOWERS #386 - February 12th, 2015

Today's Flowers opens up on Friday at 12.00 a.m., and closes the following Thursday at 11.00 p.m.   More information about this meme can be found here.


I have been searching for names of my plants and identify them when I can.  The one below is a Coral Hibiscus, scientific name is Hibiscus schizopetalus.  More information here.


My flowers today were taken around and about  on vacation in December 2015 and January 2016.

This is a Ti plant, information here.



The common name for this is Noni or Indian Mulberry.  Its scientific name is Morinda citrifolia.  I found information here.



The plant below is called Scaevola sericea - Beach Naupaka.  There is more information at this link.



I couldn't find anything about this one.



This is a Pineapple Ginger, which you can find at this link.



Bird of Paradise.  If you want to learn more about this pretty plant you can go here.











I am linking with the following memes as they become available, with my thanks to our hosts.  Please click on their names to visit other participants.

  3. That top flower blossom looks way too similar to a hibiscus stamen?!! But the petals are erratic in shape....it's so beautiful.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
