Photo of the Week: Brightly Colored Hibiscus Bloom

Another week, another photo to highlight.

This week’s photo shows nature’s vibrant colors. It was sent in by BNEWS Anchor Phil Gallagher and features a hibiscus bloom taken from his backyard. Hibiscus is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family and the genus is quite large, comprising several hundred species that are native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. A tea made from hibiscus flowers is known by many names around the world and is served both hot and cold. The beverage is known for its red color, tart flavor, and vitamin C content.

Thanks for the photo, Phil!
