Hibiscus, or locally known as “bunga raya” is Malaysia’s national flower (the one with the 5 red petals). This pretty tropical plant is planted everywhere here in my country. We can see hibiscus in almost every household. It’s very easy to plant hibiscus in our tropical climate and the varieties of hibiscus are endless. What we always did was exchanging different type of hibiscus among the neighbours so that we can enjoy the varieties :) My family and I went for a vacation last April to Kuching, Sarawak and to our surprise we managed to visit a garden at the museum.. We took a stroll and came to realize that it was a hibiscus garden!! Just when I thought my mother plant endless varieties of hibiscus in our garden, this garden is even better!! It has hibiscus of many kinds. Even the one that I never thought even exist!! I’m in awe with the garden, I really do..Beautiful landscape, unique flowers with vibrant colours, it’s a must visit place when you are in Kuching!
