Today we’re looking at the next flower in our Tropical Flower series– the hibiscus. This pretty bloom comes in various shades including pink, white, peach and yellow.

The tea made from the hibiscus has medicinal benefits -it’s a natural diuretic and can lower high blood-pressure. In the Caribbean, a species of hibiscus called the roselle, is used to make a popular cold beverage named sorrel. This is traditionally served during the Christmas season.

When used in bouquets and centerpieces, hibiscus flowers are usually mixed in with other blooms. It does, however, stand out quite nicely when incorporated into a theme.
