Another of Charles Atiu’s Masterpieces: NMMA Dracula’s Fiancee


I wanted to share to all of you another wonder of Moorea, namely NMMA Dracula’s Fiancee, one of many Charles Atiu’s masterpieces.

Registred with IHS more than a year ago, NMMA Dracula’s Fiancee is a 100% Moorea cross, between Moorea Moana Storm and Moorea Miti.

IFIF1The color of the blooms is light violet heavily splashed with pinkish white. Good seeder, with a good ability to root, NMMA Dracula’s Fiancee is one of a kind, hope you like it as much as I do 🙂

Warm Browns For Warm Hearts From The Master Of Brown Hibiscuses


Although is a color hard to obtain in hibiscus, for the Master Of Hibiscus Colors, Charles Atiu, is a child’s play. Enjoy the beautiful Moorea brown blooms, along with the significance of brown in the color psychology.

Brown is a serious, down-to-earth color signifying stability, structure and support.

Relating to the protection and support of the family unit, with a keen sense of duty and responsibility, brown takes its obligations seriously. It encourages a strong need for security and a sense of belonging, with family and friends being of utmost importance.

22The color brown relates to quality in everything – a comfortable home, the best food and drink and loyal companionship. It is a color of physical comfort, simplicity and quality. From a negative perspective it can also give the impression of cheapness and stinginess in certain circumstances.

Brown is friendly and approachable. It is loyal, trustworthy and dependable in a practical and realistic way.

Autumn Colors For October – SMMA Blooms



Pale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees,
That hardly sway before a breeze
As soft as summer: summer’s loss
Seems little, dear! on days like these.

Let misty autumn be our part!
The twilight of the year is sweet:
Where shadow and the darkness meet
Our love, a twilight of the heart
Eludes a little time’s deceit.

Are we not better and at home
In dreamful Autumn, we who deem
No harvest joy is worth a dream?
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream.

Beyond the pearled horizons lie
Winter and night: awaiting these
We garner this poor hour of ease,
Until love turn from us and die
Beneath the drear November trees.”
Ernest Dowson, The Poems and Prose of Ernest Dowson
