The Hibiscus is native to tropical regions. The first Hibiscus was native to the warm southern part of China. Hibiscus blooms last only one day, regardless of how they are preserved, but their contribution to a centerpiece or bouquet in that limited time in nothing short of spectacular! Their colors are dramatic and usually intense, and the feeling of tropical luxuriance they bring to an interior or garden setting is almost unmatched in the plant world.
