Hibiscus flowers are a type of flowering plant with bright, five-colored petals and a long floral tube. They are native to India and Malaysia, but there are hundreds of types of hibiscus, including herbs, shrubs, and trees. They have a circadian cycle and close their leaflets at night. They come in various colors, some of which change with age, and have a large and trumpet-like shape. They are easy to grow, good for the bees and butterflies, and can be trained to have a bush or a tree form.
Hibiscus flowers (called Flor de Avispa) are very common in Nicaragua and are often used as decorative plants. The flower is part of the Malvaceae family and can grow up to about 4-6 feet tall. Additionally, this beautiful flower can come in a variety of colors such as white, pink, and red.
