|Hibiscus (pron.: /hɨˈbɪskəs/ or /haɪˈbɪskəs/) is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. It is quite large, containing several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are often noted for their showy flowers and are commonly known simply as hibiscus, or less widely known as rose mallow. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, as well as woody shrubs and small trees. The generic name is derived from the Greek word ἱβίσκος (hibískos), which was the name Pedanius Dioscorides (ca. 40–90) gave to Althaea officinalis.|

This is a lovely hibiscus. And I like the way you framed it. Although I can see a small problem on this one. The flower doesn't seem sharp to me at all. And it could have been much better too if the flower's color is vibrant so that it has a contrast with the background and frame.
Anyway good job! TFS.
