Photograph of a Flower

Beaming in Sunlight

The only thing I know about this flower is that it is called 'Jaba phul' in Bengali. I have never bothered to know its scientific name. This variety is known as 'Rakta Jaba' rakta which means blood in Bengali, stands for the blood like color of this flower. This one is usually given as offering to 'Maa Kali' and perceived as her favorite flower.

In Hindi it's called Javakusum and in English Hibiscus.

This flower is also known as hibiscus flower. My Bua used to plant lots of it in our garden during the winter season.
