"Draw A Hawaiian Flower In Pencil"

Home » Pencil Flower Drawings » Hawaiian Flower

To draw a flower is easy if you select a flower which has few and large petals. One of the flower that I recommend you to draw is from a Hibiscus species. But before we go, let's have some facts about this flower.

Hibiscus or rosemallow, is a large genus of about 200 - 220 species of flowering plants in the family Malvaceae, native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, and woody shrubs and small trees.

The leaves are alternate, simple, ovate to lanceolate, often with a toothed or lobed margin.

The flowers are large, conspicuous, trumpet-shaped, with five or more petals, ranging from white to pink, red, purple or yellow, and from 4-15 cm broad.

National symbol - Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (Bunga Raya or "Chinese hibiscus") is the national flower of Malaysia. Hibiscus syriacus (Mugunghwa or "Rose of Sharon") is the national flower of South Korea.

The ma'o hau hele (Hibiscus brackenridgei) is the state flower of Hawai'i.

The Native Hibiscus Flower is a national emblem of the Stolen Generation of indigenous peoples in Australia. Its color denotes compassion and spiritual healing.
