I have planted hibiscus - also known as shoe flowers - all along one side of my compound. They are perennials and yield throughout the year rain or shine. They last on the plant just for a day. Here are a few/

I have some hibiscus seeds I bought because hibiscus tea is delicious and it lowers blood pressure. Your plants are lovely.

I don't know anything about them, though. Are they big plants? Are they vines? Do they need full sun?

Hibiscus is known to have many health properties but sadly I have not made any use of them except admire them on the plants. The plants are quite tall . If they are not trimmed they could grow taller. They need moderate sun.

They all are beautiful! I've never tried to grow hibiscus, but I sometimes drink hibiscus tea. It's really good!
A shoe flower is a funny name:) Where did it come from?

It is said that the petals were used to polish shoes.

I make an infusion with the red dry hibiscus flowers :) I drink it with sugar, but over here is a popular drink when you add sugar to it. Love it! By the way, I had no idea there were yellow and pink hibiscus out there! I had the red variety growing in my garden only.

I have a peach and a white and also a pure yellow - must search my folder. There will definitely be a purple I am sure. There is the Hawaiian variety which are quite large. Here is a link - feast on it (lol)
