These are really wonderful shrubs. They are pretty sturdy and tough, so there’s practically no maintenance apart from regular watering. They are in flower throughout the year, and the flowers are beautiful and  attract bees, butterflies and birds. The red hibiscus flowers can be used to prepare natural dyes, and are also added to hair oil for hair-strengthening, medicinal benefits.
