A Symbol Of The Coming Heat

Hibiscus have state, national, and cultural symbolism.  They are used in tea, food, construction, and medicine. 

They also look beautiful in a garden, which is where this one is going.  To me, the Hibiscus flower reminds me of the islands.  Hot and humid, water and beaches.  

This one will live in my mother's backyard.  There's plenty of heat here in Tucson.  This plant should flourish!
