Hibiscus rosa sinensis

This plant is Barranquilla´s symbolic flower, yet it does not originate from the Americas. It is a classic for the tropics and comes in an incredible variety of colors, most of which are not available in Colombia. Shown below are the colors I have seen to date. Hibiscus do well from the coast of Barranquilla to the mountains of Bogotá. However on the Caribbean coast they are not that plentiful and appear to be susceptible to disease or pest. Photographed in Barranquilla, Bogotá, and the department of Tolima and Quindio.
