Photo of the Day: White Hibiscus Flower in Puerto de Mogan

Discussion in 'Gran Canaria Photos' started by Gran Canaria Blog, Mar 28, 2013.

  1. Flowers look so much nicer in their natural habitat than in vases or jars - in my opinion. On a recent trip to Puerto de Mogan (blog post coming soon with photos) I saw this white Hibiscus flower blowing softly in the breeze.

    Hibiscus flowers can be seen all over the island in red or white and seem to love the tropical climate.

    I'm in no way a flower expert, but after a little googling I discovered they are also known as Rose Mallow plus have health benefits when used as tea.

    To quote wikipedia:
    The red hibiscus flower is traditionally worn by Tahitian women. A single flower, tucked behind the ear, is used to indicate the wearer's availability for marriage.

    Do you have a favourite plant or flower?
