R10(I) Hibiscus Flowers

Issue Date: March 15, 2005

 Picture Available

On March 15, 2005, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues new postage stamps featuring hibiscus flowers.

Native to tropical and subtropical regions like the Marshall Islands, the delightful hibiscus is one of nature's most beautiful flowers. Displayed in a myriad of colors including pink, red, white and yellow, hibiscus derives its name from the Greek word "hibiskos" for the common marsh mallow -- a tall perennial that originated in Europe. While some hibiscus blossoms have a slight fragrance, most have no scent at all. A favorite of gardeners, these lovely flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Designed by noted artist Gigi Hoeller, these stamps feature four colorful hibiscus flowers in full bloom -- Burgundy Blush, Fiesta, June's Joy and Norman Lee.
