Malvaceae week 0905-9112011 UD 012 Hibiscus VINE :  Talipariti archboldianum


Dear All:

At a botanical garden in Southern California , in a conservatory  (to save it from scorching heat and unrelenting sun, I think)  I found this…  Was new and different.. never imagined hibiscus would grow on a vine…


Unfortunately I had used up all the memory in the card, and ran out of lots of (all) the batteries… got these 4 pictures… the vine had only one flower… way up there… far  and could not see it too well…

But sending it in… just so if any one else has seen this.. or if its also available in some botanical garden in India….

The white label in picture 1 says it all…
