Hibiscus mutabilis

Hibiscus mutabilis (Hibiscus mutabilis)

Day 3, and this has become a dark pink. I was reading about this flower, and someone went to the trouble of weighing it, and found it looses half its weight as it changes.

They don't photograph very well, but a shrub with all three colours at the same time is a sight. You have to stand too far back and the flowers look are just dots. This is one you have to see live.
