All The Colors In The World Gathered Together In Moorea Hibiscus


All these blooms look like a fantasy… a real one, created by one man… Almost unbelivable that a single human being is able to create so many masterpeices… This gift from God was not wasted by Master Charles Atiu, but, on the contrary, to our joy of the soul.

As Master Atiu used to say:

“As time passed I perfected my art. Until one day, when two flowers that were completely different  by color and intensity appeared between my creations. Both were the result of interbreeding Petit Capo Marron and Blue Bayou , and I called them Moorea Mamie Blue and Moorea Rehu. At that time, Moorea Mamie Blue was the closest to blue flower that I had in my collection. From here started the desire to get flowers in shades of blue.  As for Moorea Rehu, it was the first brown flower I got when I still did not imagine that such colors could exist .

Since then, I have dedicated most of my time to color and shape of Moorea hybrids.”

Hats off to Charles Atiu!


I want to share with you some of my thoughts, related to those people who help this blog to stay alive. I am 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 the 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. Hats off to Charles ATIU !
