5/19/2012 Where were these 50 years ago?

I grew up in Lakeland, FL and we had several hibiscus bushes in our yard. We had the small, red kind that never opened and my friend and I would suck the sweet juice out the stem end. (I know, it might have been poisonous)  Lakeland now has spectacular varieties everywhere.  I was just thinking… I wonder if the artist and the horticulturist collaborated to develop something so beautiful?
