I’m involved in a project to document the Hibiscus flowers at the Punta Gorda History Park. They are important to the Historical Society which runs the park because Harry Goulding, one of the world’s most reknown hibiscus hybridizers worked in Punta Gorda. In fact, he produced over 450 hybrids. It is basically a documentary effort trying to capture the characteristics of the specific hybrid so, the pictures aren’t that thrilling.
While shooting though, I did notice the other ‘features’ of the garden. It attracts pollinators and other insects. Well, where there are plants, there are insects that eat plants like this Little Leaf Notcher (Artipus floridanus).
The Hibiscus pictures will probably appear, in part, on other Punta Gorda Historical Society blogs and a guide to the park.
