Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb, for On Gardening. One of the most beautiful plants we can think of, is that of the hibiscus, Hibiscus Rosasinensis. You can see the beautiful blooms, when we talk about what is. Well, this is a plant you want to think about. This plant has beautiful blooms in almost every shade imaginable. You can get them in pinks, yellows, reds, doubles, singles, and they flower about ten months a year. Remember of course that this plant is the Hibiscus Rosasinensis. It's from China, we believe and of course, it's one of those plants that is been grown throughout the tropics. It's the most grown plant throughout the tropics, as far as a flowering plant. It's an easy plant to grow and of course it's been grown in Florida and many of the other southern states where it really became a standard in the landscape. Most of your blooms will come on the top of the plant. And of course with this plant I would say make sure you make a ten dollar hole for your ten dollar plant. Why, because it's going to pay dividends down the road. This plant is one that has been eaten in many parts of Mexico. They use the flower as a delicacy and of course, it's also been used to make teas as well. Hibiscus Rosasinensis, is one that you want to make sure that you do give it some room, probably about three or four feet between plantings, and remember it gets to be four or five feet tall, though you can trim it and keep it shaped, to your particular size. Hibiscus Rosasinensis, an excellent plant for you. For On Gardening, I'm Stan Defreitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
