Cotton Cousins

Yes, the popular hibiscus is related to the cotton plant, I learned.

The shriveling flower of the cotton plant looks just like the hibiscus bud.

Another commom feture is that both flowers last no more than a day or two...

djnana Great images and great information! I never knew...

My pet peeve about hibiscus is that the blooms fade so quickly. They are beautiful while they last, though.

darfoster Interesting Agi! I did not know that. Great shots and composition. Was going to post something similar tomorrow, but now I think I'll have to do something else as mine won't measure up to yours.
