Summer is in full bloom here in Hawaii, although it seems like flowers can bloom year round and they do flower quite often. Here are some of my all time favorite flowers that I love to see almost everyday on my daily walks in my garden and outside in many beautiful places on the island.
It almost seems like the flowers here in Hawaii are so vivid and filled with color, here the plumerias are all different colors and shapes, but this one below is my favorite because of its intense hue of deep red with an orange blush on its throat.
Deep maroon colors of this hibiscus flower the size of someone’s head, it’s huge!
A bright pink hibiscus flower greets me in the morning timeframe, a perfect welcoming, don’t you agree?
Bright yellow tropical vireyas or rhododendrons with huge yellow clusters on this shrub almost the size of a small tree. I love taking pictures of flowers when they are backlit like these clusters because they just glow and are more dramatic, don’t you think?
This tropical vireya is also sweetly scented like the smell of flowery gardenia. Here’s another shot of a cluster that is backlit, almost making the flowers translucent in their appearance.

Shade loving anthuriums seem to bloom forever, most of the flowers last weeks if not an entire month. That’s one of the reasons people love to grow these plants and they make excellent cut flowers for display.
