The Hibiscus Bush ... Growing in Hawaii

Always a matter of controversy here in Hawaii ... the Hibiscus. So many types, colors, sizes. In the early 1900's the Hibiscus of any kind was considered the Territory Flower. In 1959 when Hawaii became a state the flower was also recognized as a state symbol. In 1988, finally a decision was made, the yellow Hibiscus became the Flower of the 50th State. People still will argue about which color hibiscus is actually the State flower. The Hibiscus usually does not have a scent, at least I don't think so. I have many Hibiscus scattered throughout my property. I have yellow, red, pink, white, orange. I remember going back to NJ after first visiting Hawaii. My new wife and I went to the Home Depot and bought a Hibiscus bush. We would get so excited about the bush getting one flower. We would notice the bump start, then it would grow, then it would open, and two days later the flower would have wilted and fallen off the bush. Weeks could go by before seeing another flower start to bud. Never did we have more than one flower ... more
