Afternoon! thought I’d share another plant that I saw on my hols to #mexico 🇲🇽. I think this is Hibiscus tiliaceus, or the Sea Hibiscus. It’s a medium sized tree which has quite rounded leaves, almost heart shaped. It has these stunning bright yellow flowers which change colour over the course of the day to orange and red before falling off. Quite a fascinating thing 😀 - it’s not native to Mexico, but I think came from parts of Australia and South East Asia.
