Hibiscus radiatus an amazing flower

I'm a edible plant girl through and through, but there is something about watching bees fly flower to flower or the butterflies flitting through the garden that lends an air of need to flowers.

I am recently discovering you can have a happy mix, planting flowers and edibles together but some edibles have such amazing blooms themselves.

My now favorite is the short day blooming Hibiscus Radiatus. I call it lemon hibiscus because they leaves have a tart lemon flavor.

The leaves are very cannabis like in looks but it has no relation.

The Blooms are the most glorious shade of reddish purple...

I am in love with these blooms!!
