History:
Genus Hibiscus, named for its Latin and Greek title for the native European species contains over 200 species from around the world. The species name means rose of China pointing to its place of origin in southeast Asia where plants are found in the literature as early as 295 BC. It was introduced to Europe in 1731 where tender plants were grown in greenhouses. Hawaii and then California and Florida became the major sources of new Hibiscus cultivars in the 20th century.
