Happy Holidays and A Very Happy 2017 New Year


In the New Year, don’t be scared. Be bold. Be happy. Be active. Be a new you.


I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.

Neil Gaiman


Wishing you all the best and very Happy Hibiscus Growing!

One Grumpy And One Belle Fille


Two beautiful blooms, different creations of One and Only Genius – Master Charles Atiu.

Moorea Aroha Belle Fille was registred with the IHS in 2009, an oldie, but goldie Moorean Cultivar. The parents are Moorea Iaorana Girl (pod parent)

Moorea Iaorana Girl

and Moorea Anastasya (pollen parent)

Moorea Anastasya

The size of the bloom is around 15 cm. and is lovely, as it can be seen from the images below.

The other Moorea cultivar emphasized here (although there are so many others to be emphasized…in fact all of Master Atiu’s creation 🙂 – is Moorea Grumpy.

Child of Moorea Silver Storm (pod parent)

and Moorea Merveille Intensity (pollen parent)

15 Moorea Merveille Intensity

Moorea Grumpy is one of a kind.

Quite a paradox – a Grumpy that produces joy :)))))

July, 2016 – VMMA Wonders


Because tomorrow is a special day – July 11 – here are the most recent Moorea creations – VMMA A Gift Of Gladness, VMMA July 11, VMMA Hendrik Jan Gommer, VMMA White Lion.

I must say that VMMA Hendrik Jan Gommer is dedicated to a great hibiscus lover and owner of a great nursery in Holland. Because of him many of the European hibiscus passionates are able to get some rare cultivars, and go on with their hobby.

Unforgettable NMMA Cultivars


I’m sure that, if you read this, you love hibiscus and especially Moorea Hibiscus. This means Charles Atiu. He’s just a man. He’s restless. He’s a Genius. He shares his wonderful creations with all of us, but fortunately he is not alone (my deepest admiration and respect to MT!). Most of the time, we are not aware of  what happens behind the curtain, about these people’s problems and worries. We see only the splendid result of their work. Maybe it is time to be aware that Master Atiu has a dream. He dreams that his progeny and the progeny of his progeny will come to know his work. To this work he dedicated all his life. From dawn to dusk. To The Hibiscus. And Moorea. Meaning Moorea Hibiscus.

For me, the NMMA Moorea Cultivars, created by the genius master Charles ATIU and registred with IHS during September, 2014, represent a milestone inside the New Charles Atiu Collection. We are talking here about peerless creations, such as NMMA Dracula’s Fiancee, NMMA Aria, NMMA Bombay Cat, NMMA A Stranger’s Kiss, NMMA Black Heart, NMMA Delirium, NMMA Charles’s Dream, and so on…

Hats off, Master ATIU !
