Though many of the plants in the Hibiscus genus grow in tropical or semitropical regions, several hardier species such as this one are native to North America. The genus name Hibiscus comes from the Greek word for “mallow,” the name of a common flower. The species name “militaris” refers to the resemblance of the leaves of this plant to a 16th century military weapon called a halberd. In the language of flowers, hibiscus signifies delicate beauty or gentleness.
