Biggest flowers I've seen!

andrea_san_diego(z10 So Cal)April 10, 2005

Last year on a trip to San Francisco I toured the recently refurbished Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park and saw stunningly large hibiscus flowers. They must have been 12" across in beautiful colors. I wish I had checked the names on the plants because I keep thinking about having those georgous hibiscus in my front garden. At least I took a couple of pictures. Does anyone know of hibiscus with such large flowers?

Try emailing your photo to the Conservatory. I bet they would be happy to answer your question. If that doesn't work, contact the Tropical Hibiscus Mailing List. Email me if you can't find the link on google - gardenweb won't let me post it here.
