Hibiscus (/hbsks/[2] or /habsks/[3]) is a genus of flowering
plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. It is quite large, containing
several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate,
subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member
species are often noted for their showy flowers and are commonly
known simply as hibiscus, or less widely known as rose mallow. The
genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, as well
as woody shrubs and small trees. The generic name is derived from
the Greek word (hibskos), which was the name Pedanius
Dioscorides (ca. 4090) gave to Althaea officinalis.[4]

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis

Scientific classification



















The leaves are alternate, ovate to lanceolate, often with a toothed or
lobed margin. The flowers are large, conspicuous, trumpet-shaped,
with five or more petals, color from white to pink, red, orange, purple
or yellow, and from 418 cm broad. Flower color in certain species,
such as H. mutabilis and H. tiliaceus, changes with age.[5] The fruit is
a dry five-lobed capsule, containing several seeds in each lobe, which
are released when the capsule dehisces (splits open) at maturity. It is
of red and white colours. It is an example of complete flowers.

Symbolism and culture

The hibiscus is the national flower of Haiti and is used in their
national tourism slogan of Hati: Experience It![6][7] The Hibiscus
species also represents several other nations. The Hibiscus syriacus is
the national flower of South Korea, and Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is the
national flower of Malaysia. The red hibiscus is the flower of the
Hindu goddess Kali, and appears frequently in depictions of her in the
art of Bengal, India, often with the goddess and the flower merging in
form. The hibiscus is used as an offering to goddess Kali and Lord
Ganesha in Hindu worship. [8]
In the Philippines, the gumamela (local name for hibiscus) is used by
children as part of a bubble-making pastime. The flowers and leaves
are crushed until the sticky juices come out. Hollow papaya stalks are
then dipped into this and used as straws for blowing bubbles.
The hibiscus flower is traditionally worn by Tahitian and Hawaiian
girls. If the flower is worn behind the left ear, the woman is married
or in a relationship. If the flower is worn on the right, she is single or
openly available for a relationship. The hibiscus is Hawaii's state

A white Hibiscus arnottianus in


Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named her first novel

Purple Hibiscus after the delicate flower.
The bark of the hibiscus contains strong bast fibres that can be
obtained by letting the stripped bark set in the sea to let the organic
material rot away.


Hibiscus hirtus

Many species are grown for their showy flowers or used as landscape
shrubs, and are used to attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. [9]

One species of Hibiscus, known as kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus), is
extensively used in paper-making.

Main article: Hibiscus tea
The tea made of hibiscus flowers is known by many names in many countries around the world and is served
both hot and cold. The beverage is well known for its color, tanginess and flavor.
It is known as bissap in West Africa, "Gul e Khatmi" in Urdu & Persian, agua de jamaica in Mexico and
Honduras (the flower being flor de jamaica) and gudhal () in India. Some refer to it as roselle, a
common name for the hibiscus flower. In Jamaica, Trinidad and many other islands in the Caribbean, the
drink is known as sorrel (Hibiscus sabdariffa; not to be confused with Rumex acetosa, a species sharing the

common name sorrel). In Ghana, the drink is known as soobolo in

one of the local languages.
In Cambodia, a cold beverage can be prepared by first steeping the
petals in hot water until the colors are leached from the petals, then
adding lime juice (which turns the beverage from dark brown/red to a
bright red), sweeteners (sugar/honey) and finally cold water/ice
In Egypt, Sudan and the Arab world, hibiscus tea is known as
karkad (), and is served as both a hot and a cold drink.
Hibiscus lobatus

Dried hibiscus is edible, and it is often a delicacy in Mexico. It can
also be candied and used as a garnish.[10]
The roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is used as a vegetable. The species
Hibiscus suratensis Linn synonymous to Hibiscus aculeatus G. Don is
noted in Visayas Philippines being a souring ingredient for almost all
local vegetables and menus. Known as Labog in the Visayan area, (or
Labuag/Sapinit in Tagalog), the species is a very good ingredient in
cooking native chicken soup.
Hibiscus species are used as food plants by the larvae of some
Lepidopteran species, including Chionodes hibiscella, Hypercompe
hambletoni, the nutmeg moth, and the turnip moth.

Hibiscus hispidissimus (Wild


Health benefits
The tea is popular as a natural diuretic; it contains vitamin C and
minerals, and is used traditionally as a mild medicine. Polyphenol
compounds were discovered in the leaves of Hibiscus sabdariffa,
which has also shown anti-inflammatory activities. [11]

A 2008 USDA study shows consuming hibiscus tea lowers blood

pressure in a group of prehypertensive and mildly hypertensive
adults. Three cups of tea daily resulted in an average drop of 8.1
mmHg in their systolic blood pressure, compared to a 1.3 mmHg drop
in the volunteers who drank the placebo beverage. Study participants
with higher blood pressure readings (129 or above) had a greater
response to hibiscus tea: their systolic blood pressure went down by
13.2 mmHg. These data support the idea that drinking hibiscus tea in
an amount readily incorporated into the diet may play a role in
controlling blood pressure, although more research is required. [12]
Studies have demonstrated the anti-hypertensive effects of H.
sabdariffa in both humans and animals.[13] It has been proposed that
the antihypertensive effects of H. sabdariffa is due to its angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibiting activity.[14] In a randomized, controlled
clinical trial involving 39 patients with mild to moderate
hypertension, Captopril was compared to an extract of H. sabdariffa
for antihypertensive effects. Subjects taking an extract of

H.sabdariffa, consumed daily before breakfast for four weeks, found

reduction in blood pressure similar to Captopril.[15] Another
randomized, placebo clinical trial involving 54 study participants with
moderate hypertension demonstrated a reduction in both systolic and
diastolic blood pressure. However upon discontinuation of treatment,
both systolic and diastolic blood pressures were subsequently
Hibiscus rosa-sinensis has a number of medical uses in Chinese
herbology.[17] Sidram A. et al. their research indicates some potential
in cosmetic skin care; for example, an extract from the flowers of
Hibiscus rosa- sinensis has been shown to function as an anti-solar
agent by absorbing ultraviolet radiation.[18]
In the Indian traditional system of medicine, Ayurveda, hibiscus,
especially white hibiscus and red hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis), is
considered to have medicinal properties. The roots are used to make
various concoctions believed to cure ailments such as cough, hair loss
Close up of hibiscus center
or hair greying. As a hair treatment, the flowers are boiled in oil along
with other spices to make a medicated hair oil. The leaves and
flowers are ground into a fine paste with a little water, and the resulting lathery paste is used as a shampoo
plus conditioner.
Hibiscus tea also contains bioflavonoids, which are believed to help prevent an increase in LDL cholesterol,
which can increase the buildup of plaque in the arteries. [19]
A previous animal study demonstrated the effects of H.sabdariffa extract on atherosclerosis in rabbits.
Notably, a reduction in triglyceride, cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein was observed in rabbits
consuming a high cholesterol diet (HCD) in addition to H.sabdariffa extract compared to rabbits only fed
HCD, suggesting a beneficial effect.[20] Furthermore, the H. sabdariffa seed is abundant in phytosterol and
tocopherol, plant forms of cholesterol that have antioxidant and LDL cholesterol lowering effects.[21]

Precautions and contraindications

Pregnancy and lactation
While the mechanism is not well understood, previous animal studies have demonstrated both an inhibitory
effect of H. sabdariffa on muscle tone and the anti-fertility effects of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, respectively.
[22][23] The extract of H. sabdariffa has been shown to stimulate contraction of the rat bladder and uterus; [22]
the H.rosa-sinensis extract has exhibited contraceptive effects in the form of estrogen activity in rats.[23]
These findings have not been observed in humans. The Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is also thought to have
emmenagogue effects which can stimulate menstruation and, in some women, cause an abortion.[24][25][26]
Due to the documented adverse effects in animal studies and the reported pharmacological properties, the H.
sabdariffa and H.rosa-sinensis are not recommended for use during pregnancy.[26] Additionally, they are not
recommended while breastfeeding due to the lack of reliable information on its safety and use.

It is postulated that H. sabdariffa interacts with diclofenac, chloroquine and acetaminophen by altering the
pharmacokinetics. In healthy human volunteers, the H. sabdariffa extract was found to reduce the excretion
of diclofenac upon co-administration.[27] Additionally, co-administration of Karkade (H. sabdariffa), a
common Sudanese beverage, was found to reduce chloroquine bioavailability.[28] However, no statistically
significant changes were observed in the pharmacokinetics of acetaminophen when administered with the
Zobo (H.sabdariffa) drink.[29] Further studies are needed to demonstrate clinical significance.

In temperate zones, probably the most commonly grown ornamental species is Hibiscus syriacus, the
common garden hibiscus, also known in some areas as the "Rose of Althea" or "Rose of Sharon" (but not to
be confused with the unrelated Hypericum calycinum, also called "Rose of Sharon"). In tropical and
subtropical areas, the Chinese hibiscus (H. rosa-sinensis), with its many showy hybrids, is the most popular
