Surveys both kinds of hibiscus: the tropical, subtropical and warm-temperate plants, as well as the hardy perennials and shrubs which thrive in spite of snow, ice, drought, flood or poor soil. The book chronicles the history and traditions of their use in addition to those such as hollyhocks, okra and cotton. A photographic gallery of hibiscuses illustrates the richness of the many species and cultivars from which the gardener may choose.
