That's a yellow hibiscus flower, shot at a university garden.
What I really liked about the flower was that even if the petals were torn (by some insect, most probably, since it was too high up to be done by passer-bys), it still looked beautiful. Well, to me, at least. :)
I love the different colors of this plant type ... red, violet/bluish, white, yellow ... and so many varieties! My sister has planted the violet/bluish variety in her garden, but it didn't seem to be thriving too well. Kind of spindly and the aphids are so attracted to it. Occasionally it blooms, though. :)
