Flowers in the Marianas (by BR)

this is hibiscus.

we find a lot of these in parks.



bougainvillea are very common here.


I found this at a park. I wish I knew what it was called.

we have some of these in our yard: "awapuhi" is the local name.
(Acalypha hispida) I think is the scientific name for  this.

Plumeria Flowers are very common here.

Flame tree Flowers bloom in the summer.





These flowers only grow on specific rocks.

this might be a yellow hibiscus in our yard?

Flowers of the Rubiaceae family grow in our yard. 

I found this in my drive way.

I don't know what the yellow ones are called, but they were all over Florida when I was growing up.

William says the ones in your driveway are lantana, probably invasive.
