We struggled to get here; hot, humid and the concrete paths that seemed to wend their way uphill forever, and then we experienced the tape seemingly strung ad hoc to prevent entry. Don't recall seeing any blooms, we saw a water feature, gave up and headed to the Tun Abdul Razak Memorial.

The Hibiscus Garden is a part of the Perdana Botanical Garden, located about the centre of the park and judging from my complaining legs, close to being the highest point of the park. I walked up from the Jalan Tembusu entrance is it wasn’t that bad. The Hibiscus Garden is a landscaped garden and named after the predominant flower grown. There were enough flowers in bloom for the views to be worth the walk, although the garden wasn’t exactly blooming in full. Would be nice to revisit when that happens. There’s several covered walkways, paths and fountains dotted around the garden, but sadly none of the latter were in operation.

This garden is a bit of a climb, but you can always use the paid for transport to visit this and the rest of the park.

This very pretty garden, part classical European, part tacky modern Asian, sits next to the Orchid Garden. We had been visiting the Orchid Garden (which, like the Hibiscus Garden, has no entry fees) and walked right through, down a hill path flanked by miniature red hibiscus and Chinese hibiscus (the common red variety) and into the Hibiscus Garden. Right in the middle of this, there’s a small traffic island (even though there are almost no vehicles around). And bang in the middle of the traffic island, there’s a large and pretty ghastly sculpture (fibreglass? Plastic? Painted plaster? I couldn’t tell) of hibiscus.

Other than this eyesore, though, the rest of the garden is quiet and beautiful. Pathways covered over with an orange-and-yellow flowering creeper wind their way around the base of a low hillock. Every few steps is a hibiscus bush, with flowers in different types and colours: I saw peach, a double-coloured variety in peach and maroon, a couple of reds (including one with a second set of petals bulging out, sphere-like, above the style), a lovely white, a pale pink, and more.

At the top of the hillock, there’s a little enclosed garden, somewhat reminiscent of one of those classical European ones. You enter into a sort of porch, with a series of pools (all sadly empty now) in the middle and arched doorways along both sides; you walk through into a circular garden, with a pavilion at one end and columns, like follies, along one side. There are flowering trees here and there, including white and red frangipani and tulip trees, and (of course) lots more hibiscus.

For a flower lover like me, the Hibiscus Garden was a treat. It’s free, it’s uncrowded (in fact, pretty much deserted), and the flowers and surroundings are lovely. I just wish it had been better labelled—except for the Chinese hibiscus, I couldn’t see identifying labels on any of the other species.

I went walking here by accident. I didn't even know I was here until I saw a sign at the end. The flowers are beautiful and it is quiet and away from the busyness of the city. Free except on weekends and holidays.

Very peaceful walking through the two gardens but as others have said very few flowers to see. But we went on a Friday and it is free. Only RM1.00 at weekends and public holidays.

Such a peaceful and tranquil place to visit. The colours and shapes quite outstanding. Very useful name plaques. Do visit the adjacent orchid gardens. Again beautiful colours and designs. Caught a taxi there much confusion he dropped me off a long way from the entrance.

If you are on a day trip skip this. It says hibiscus park but very limited hibiscus on sight. They should have changed the name to various plant park.

The Hibiscus is the national flower of Malaysia and the park contains some wonderful varieties. Well maintained and a good place for a break in the shade if you're exploring the park.
