Here is another one of my flower favorites this season.
I found this beauty at Big Bloomers flower farm..where Sicksta Adele works.
I was there in the late afternoon and the flower was a beautiful rummy yellow with a magenta center.
The flower is about eight inches across.
I had several people come up to me while in the store in awe of the flower and wanting me to show them where to get one.
What's so very cool about it is that it changes colors.

“9 a.m. -- Rum Runner hibiscus starts out the morning with varying shades of magenta on the outside. As colors progress inward, they become lavenders, a starburst-like splash of iridescent blue and then a dark burgundy eye in the center.”
“3 p.m. -- By mid-afternoon, the Rum Runner has switched to a bright yellow pastel with a blush pink where the lavender had been prominent in the morning. The dark burgundy in the center remains throughout the day. The flowers last until dark, then close for the night and repeat their performance the next day.”
