Master Charles Atiu’s Heavenly Hibiscus Sanctuary


An admirer of Master Atiu’s work posted the other day a comment, saying that we should have Hibiscus Gardens all around the world. These are his words:

It would be wonderful to have gardens of Hibiscus for the public. They would have to be confined to the tropics, but what magnificent a sight it would be to help restore nature and lift our spirits.
I am unaware of any such gardens. There is one in Malaysia, but when I see pictures, it does not have a great variety. Of course it would not be easy, but nothing worthwhile is. It would be a garden of great beauty and be a testament to Charles Atiu’s genius and all those involved in this wonder of the gardening World.

By me, these heavenly place already exists, and the blooms below are the proof of the only Hibiscus Sanctuary on Earth, made and maintained by Master Atiu’s genius on the island of Moorea 🙂

Sequences Of Blue, As In Master Atiu’s Blue


In my home I became used to see blue hibiscuses . After a few years , Moorea Dark Kiss had become a common flower,  until her picture was posted to the Internet for the first time. That was the moment when I realized that I am the creator of an unique flower, realizing it was me the first one that I got the most intense blue color seen on any hibiscus. But to be understood, for me it is nothing more than a flower with a beautiful color, exceptional , of course, but nothing more than that.  For me, all flowers are beautiful and all colors are exceptional. And I say this because only time and experience have turned me into a hybridizer .

The next step was to try all possible combinations for obtaining the darkest blue . As I often say, my motto is to imagine the unthinkable. Once I got it, I’m sure that a new challenge is waiting for me .

So many episodes, and all so fascinating. It remains to be seen if the unthinkable will become reality someday !
