Shoe Flower
This profuse flowering variety is commonly kept in home to use the flowers for daily puja.Common name: China Rose, Chinese hibiscus Hindi: Gurhal Manipuri: Juba kusum athonba Kannada: DasavaLa Malayalam: Chemparati Tamil: chembarutti Marathi: Jaswand Konkani: Dosni Phool Botanical name: Hibiscus rosa-sinensis Family: Malvaceae (mallow family) Nobody knows whether the hibiscus really is a native of China as its latin name, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, (rosa-sinensis = Chinese Rose) suggests or not. Many believe, it comes from India. This large shrub or small tree grows to 15 feet high. The toothed leaves are arranged alternately and vary a lot, but tend to be large, dark green, and shiny. This plant has a coarse texture and may be upright or broad and spreading. It is often many-stemmed. Flowers are glorious and huge at their best -- up to 6" in diameter -- and occur in many colors. Most are flared and have a bell shape and may be single or double, smooth or scalloped. They have a long central tube with stamens and pistils at the tip. Thanks : Flowers of India
