Hibiscus comes in several colors. Most numerous aroung the Florida Gulf Coast are white, red, pink and peach-colored Hibiscus. Hibisci?

Below is a flower I had never seen before until I saw this, in a rainforest (Hilo) on Hawai'i. Unlike the reds and pinks seen on the mainland, this has a unique purple/violet shade to it.

At first I could not identify this flower, given its unique color.Locals told me it is a Gumamela. Translation: hibiscus.
