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.

A link to Gommer nursery here:

Hope you’ll enjoy all these new creations.

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 !
