Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (Chinese Hibiscus, Shoeflower)
The name shoeflower is from Jamaica, they use the flower crushed to polish black shoes.
Some species makes National flower in Korea.
I took the picture at Suan Luang in Bangkok, with Nikon FM2n using 50mm lens Fuji Velvia 50 slide film.
Hibiscus mutabilis is also called Confederate Rose or Cotton Rose.
