Syrian Hibiscus. The timeless designs that grace these pieces are adapted from exquisite antique botanical illustrations- the same images that inspired countless 18th century furnishings. Naturalists of the time created artwork to capture the new flora and fauna they were discovering in faraway lands. Many exotic species became permanent fixtures in the American Landscape. These fresh blossoms remind us of the charm and romantic appeal of Colonial Williamsburg's gardens. NCU466 Syrian Hibiscus.
