I’m a great admirer of Master Charles Atiu’s work. I admire his modesty, hard work and above all his genius. My passion started all of a sudden, before I even saw the first hibiscus seed. It was something that became a part of my life. I couldn’t live without the hibiscuses now. My daily rutine includes the Hibiscus time. This time is for my soul. Only for my pleasure. Is a panacea to many other expensive or unhealthy hobbys.


This blog is an expression of my warm admiration for a true genius of hibiscus world: Charles Atiu.

And, as I said in my first post, maybe it all started with Moorea Casiana.

As Master Atiu was so kind to name another of his Masterpieces after me, a Novelty from 2014, I give you IMMA Casiana Gabriela, that I am very proud of!

  1. Greetings,

    I used to live on Moorea at the UC Gump Station many years ago, and these beautiful Hibiscus bring back island memories. Do you know where I can buy plants of Charles Atui hybrids that ships to San Francisco, California? I especially like Moorea Silver Sun. Thank you for all your help and the wonderful pictures.
