Native to warm, tropical, and subtropical climates, the genus of flowering plants considered hibiscus includes hundreds of varieties in the mallow family. With their large, vibrantly colored petals, hibiscus flowers have become an iconic symbol for a tropical paradise. Hibiscus plants vary in size from little shrubs to small trees. Likewise, their flowers have their own individuality, and come in a broad range of colors and sizes, with red being one of the most popular. Hibiscus blossoms are the national flower of South Korea, Malaysia and Haiti. They also have spiritual significance, and play an important part in Hindu ceremonies. Though many may find it surprising, in many parts of the world these beautiful flowers are edible, and are served dried, or coated in sugar.
