The Hibiscus genus is quite large, comprising several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are renowned for their large, showy flowers and are commonly known simply as hibiscus. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus

Did you know red is the most difficult color of enamel to work with. Yes! Enamels in general do not like metal. Strange as it might seem, we are able to work with enamels on metal by applying flux as the first coat. Like primer on a car before the color of paint go on. The most common metal that enamel is applied to is copper. But red will not show up well on copper as it will on fine silver. Fine silver is my first choice to enamel on to create the sparkle to catch you eye.
