While visiting the amazing Longwood Gardens last October, we, of course, went through the Rose/Hibiscus greenhouse located to the left of the main East Conservatory entrance, right after the Tropical Terrace - which houses my favorite plant - an enormous Rabbit's Foot Fern first planted in 1952 (68 years old) and weighs 500 lbs! I digress...

The Rose House has dozens of Rose and Hibiscus varieties on display year-round. The walkway goes along the front of the greenhouse with rows of Roses and Hibiscus on display up from that walkway. It's typically quite spectacular, especially if you like roses and hibiscus flowers. Something is always in bloom in this greenhouse.

The hibiscus genus is large, comprising hundreds of varieties all native to warm temperate, sub-tropical and tropical environments all over the world. Think Florida, Bermuda, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean.

Few interior collections rival Longwood Garden's collection. This  is also true about their water lily collection (amazing and another favorite) and many other plant species.

Their seasonal displays are nothing short of incredible - their Orchid, Mum, and Christmas displays are extremely well done every year with perfect execution and incredible attention to detail. They have quite the horticultural staff.

It's one of my favorite places but unfortunately it's over 2 hours away.

Many more flower images can be enjoyed on my gallery...

In fact, the first image in this gallery is Hibiscus, rosa-sinensis 'Erin Rachel' - another stunning variety I've only seen at Longwood Gardens. This variety is located on the east end of the rose room.

If you like flower images, and especially if the color pink works in your home or office, this framed image would be a wonderful addition. How can we help you?!
