Let's Make It
Bring 1 cup water to boil. Add to lemon gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pour 1/4 cup gelatin into 2-qt. glass bowl sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until slightly thickened.
Cut plums in half; remove pits. Cut plums into thin slices, leaving slices connected at 1 end of each plum. Place, cut sides down, on work surface; flatten slightly to fan slices. Arrange over lemon gelatin in bowl; cover with remaining dissolved gelatin. Refrigerate 15 min. or until gelatin is set but not firm.
Meanwhile, bring 2 cups of the remaining water to boil; pour over flowers in bowl. Stir; cover. Let stand 5 min. Strain liquid, reserving liquid; press flowers to remove excess liquid. Discard flowers. Add cherry gelatin mixes to reserved liquid; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in remaining water. Refrigerate 15 min. or until cooled.
Pour cherry gelatin over lemon gelatin. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold just before serving.
If the reserved hibiscus liquid is not hot enough to completely dissolve the cherry gelatin mixes, microwave the liquid and gelatin mixes on HIGH 1 min. or until gelatin is completely dissolved, stirring after 30 sec.
Dessert can be stored in refrigerator up to 24 hours before serving.
Serve topped with thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping.
