Notes for Identification: Bodacious burgundy chinese hibiscus (hibiscus rosa-sinensis) is a tender evergreen shrub to small tree originates from southern china, though it is now believed to be extinct in the wild. The parent plants were red flowered, large and shrubby. Everblooming and vigorous, tropical hibiscus has glossy green leaves and produces very large, disc-shaped flowers. In the center of each bold bloom is a bottlebrush of yellow anthers and topped with five-parted, spider-like stigmas, which add an additional flourish of floral drama. There are hundreds of cultivated varieties that may be single or double and come in all colors, but no shades of true blue. Bicolored or multicolored flowers are common. The fruit is a brown capsule. Tropical hibiscus is heat tolerant and prefers full sun and mildly acid to neutral, well-drained soil. It blooms in new wood, but annual pruning is best done in early spring to allow the shrub to rejuvenate early in the season. Pest and diseases are minimal. This is a garden staple in both tropical and temperate landscapes. The vibrant shrub makes a wonderful container specimen where not hardy. In frost free zones it can be grown in mixed borders or along foundations.  source: various resources including the american horticultural society a to z encyclopedia of garden, learn to grow website, plants and the usda
