Simply named after the color of the flower. However, the story goes:
This little guy every day came out of his palm tree to pick and eat the
Hibiscus plants growing along a swimming pool in Florida. However, due
to the fact he was destroying so many flowers, the owner of the plants
soon was wanting him dead! (or at least moved somewhere else) After
this photo was framed and sent back to the owner of those plants, he chose
to allow this little guy to live happily ever after. Awwwww.
photo saved his life.
