The gumamela flower has several uses around the world. In this country it has been used as a poultice to boils, cancerous swellings and mumps, while the leaves are used as a lotion for fevers and headache. The flower is also used as ingredients in soaps, lotions and as tea and food in other parts of the world.
I chose variations in color and morphology of the flowers for posting here. These are just the available photos now from my ready files. A lot more are coming. Please stay tuned to this channel.
The above three types have shorter styles, while the next ones have them very long.
The next pink multiple petalled Hibiscus has different reproductive parts from the last red one.
This red cultivar has three distinct reproductive parts fused into one common flower. Can you see them distributed around, the yellow stamens protruding among the red petals. Isn't it wonderful to compare them not only in terms of color, but also in terms of how they show the reproductive parts, and how many flowers actually present in one show!
I again dedicate this post to Autumn Belle, because she is so generous, diligent with her postings for her readers, and... her country's national flower is the single petalled red hibiscus.The last complex cultivar is very special, so i will give it to Autumn Belle as a souvenir for her garden.
Moreover, thanks for Katarina of Roses and Stuff, the originator of Blooming Friday.
