I am going through my collection of images and identifying the plants. I have searched for a very long time attempting to identify this critter. The photo was taken on Maui and I am stumped. Can anyone provide a clue as to the identity of this flower?

Wow what a great response! Thank you all. It looks like the Oleander (Nerium oleander 'Petite Salmon') by robertduval14 (Hub I love "Secondhand Lions!") is the closest representation. Image capture was March 8, 2008 using a Canon EOS 5D with my EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM lens @ 1/125 sec f/16, ISO 100 on Maui, upcountry in a display garden in the jungle, maintained. The flowers were about 1-2 inches across and I can see other blooms not yet open behind this blossom so they would be multiples and it looks like the leaves, demonstrating a wonderful bohka, are green and the stems were, um stemey Smiling actually I do not recall any details of the plant. You all have been so kind, Thank you very much.
Here is another image of another blossom but I used the same settings with this image and about the same magnification:

Although the leaves behind it are obviously long and narrow, yet another clue. So it was in the library with the candlestick! But by whom?

How big were the flowers? Did they grow in a bunch or singley? Was the plant a tree, shrub, little plant, vine? Do you remember what the leaves looked like? Did you see it out in the jungle or in someone's garden? Anything else you can add that will help?
