Hibiscus deception again

Sunshine’s Macro Monday #27

This time I won’t tease about the colour of my Hibiscus flower. This tree is in not the best spot but has managed to survive for quite a number of years. Some seasons, it has lots of flowers, other times it is sparse.
Recent rain and hot weather has seen a few flowers appear. It is much different to the other Hibiscus in the garden.

Here is the bud

Are you ready to guess the colour?

 

Remember last weeks photos. A red bud with a pink flower!!!

 

So you have your guess ready?

How many people would have guessed correctly? I was amazed when I saw the bud as I have seen the flowers lots of time.
