Hibiscus mutabilis (Native: China)
If you have a passion for gardening, you will want to know the name of each species and everything related to it. Especially plants with huge flower, this one as shown in the photo above surely will give pride to the garderner. This is from a hibiscus family called Hibiscus Mutabilis, originally from China. It changed colours throughout the day time. It is pure white in the morning and will dramatically changed to deep pink in the afternoon. This change is caused by exposure to the heat. If the white flowers are kept in a refrigerator, they will stay white, but when taken out, they will turn to pink. The photo above was taken around 11.00 a.m.
