Barbados Blooms: Hibiscus

18th September, 2014
Barbados Blooms: The Hibiscus

Hibiscus flowers are one of those infamous tropical flowers which you will notice dotted everywhere around Barbados. They grow on large bushes and can be found in a variety of colours, from vibrant red to pink to white and even yellow! They grow between 4 and 18 cm wide and are seen in many local gardens across the island, as they are a great addition to the landscape! Not only are hibiscus flowers beautiful to admire, but they can be used for teas (both hot and cold) as they are full of vitamin C and minerals.

We hope you enjoy our beautiful tropical flora here on the island!

Located on the South Coast of Barbados, in the parish of Christ Church is a lovely collection of bays named Inch Marlow. A surfer's paradise it is often referred to; as there are usually consistent waves throughout the year, particularly suitable for beginner surfers. Almost daily the seas are dotted with these said surfers as board rentals and lessons are readily available in the surrounding area.
