(Hibiscus schizopetalus)
(Sentosa, Singapore 06-09)

When we were kids, we used to play with this flower, no, that would be the leaves actually. We would make soapy stuff from them and add a little powder detergent to make bubbles!

I only knew that they are from the hibiscus family (gumamela as we call them) now, I have learned that the most common names would be Japanese Lantern, Coral Hibiscus and Fringed Rosemallow.

Since we visited the Butterfly garden, butterflies thrive along with the flowers.
