Description:

Hibiscus, or rosemallow, is a large genus of about 200&#8211220 species of flowering plants in the family Malvaceae, native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, and woody shrubs and small trees. The bark of the hibiscus contains strong fibers. They can be obtained by letting the stripped bark sit in the sea in order to let the organic material rot away. In Polynesia these fibers (fau, p�rau) are used for making grass skirts. They have also been known to be used to make wigs.
