A really beauty.
I agree with martie, it looks like a varigated double hibiscus. :)

Beautiful Burst of Pink could be a new name. Gorgeous! The colors from light to dark in the pink/red makes me think of Valentines Day. Nice story on how you discovered the kind of flower it is. I like the way you framed the blossom and great work on the design of your name.

@Barbara: Thanks for the new capton title, Barbara. I've made the appropriate change!

greg from Denver, United States

The flower's name isn't "Hydrangea"...

It's "Bob".

Honestly, do I have to everything around here? Well, do I??

(nice shot btw)

@greg: You are too crazy, Greg! You're not going to fool me this time! :-)

Barbara from Florida, United States

Wow! I am honored and impressed. (and please do not name it Bob) kind of an inside joke.

It's very pretty, but am in agreement with martie and MaryB -- it looks like a double hibiscus to me. Hydrangeas have multiple flowerettes in their blooming cluster and the pinks I've seen are more purple-pink than actual amazing pink (like this photo).

@Viewfinder: Double hibiscus it is. :-)
