Hibiscus flowers origin from tropical and subtropical areas, they are Asia, Africa, the Americas and the Pacific Islands.

There are about 200 species world wide. Our state, Louisiana has four species of native Hibiscus: Hibiscus aculeatus, Hibiscus grandiflorus, Hibiscus lasiocarpos and Hibiscus moscheutos.

Cajun hibiscus is one of popular flowers in our state. It is cross breeding of two native flowers: Hibiscus lasiocarpos and Hibiscus moscheutos. You may see this flower at Image 4 below.

Some people plant Hibiscus to attract butterfly and hummingbirds. These critters make garden more attractive and beautiful.
