Pineland Hibiscus (Hibiscus aculeatus)

Yes, there really is a “compassion flower.” It’s a hybrid created by crossing a pansy and a violet, and it is a lovely flower. But I nominate pineland hibiscus, with its blood-red heart and pale yellow petals, as a naturally occurring compassion flower. How could anyone be other than kind and caring in its presence?
