The subtropical climate of Louisiana allows gardeners to grow the showy, bright colored Hibiscus plant which blooms continuously for 6 months in our warm spring and summers. The flower‘s trumpet shape and very large stamen attracts butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. With huge blooms that can be as big as 4 to 8 inches wide, the flower is edible and considered a delicacy in parts of South America. Consumption of this flower also has health benefit such as for cholesterol and blood pressure maintenance.
