The popular Hibiscus is a member of the mallow (Malvaceae) family and this genus contains over 200 annual or perennial herbs, shrubs, or trees. They are widely distributed throughout warm temperate, subtropical, and tropical regions of the world. The epitome of tropical plants, they feature lush foliage and large flamboyant blooms in vibrant colors. In their native regions, these plants were grown not only for their great beauty, but also for their edible leaves and flowers. Hibiscus species are relatively easy to grow, and while often used as a colorful stand-alone feature in the garden, some species can be trimmed to shape and make effective hedging or screening plants.
