Definition of hibiscus:
The sun went down; the soft air grew colder: we walked quickly back through the outskirts of Tangier, between gardens full of plumbago, dituria, geraniums, hibiscus, pointsettias, narcissus, frescia, and roses of all sorts, besides other flowers.- "In the Tail of the Peacock", Isabel Savory.
- "Little Folks' Handy Book", Lina Beard Adelia B. Beard.
Plants and trees sprang out of the sand, and such flowers as there were- roses, and pomegranate blossoms, hibiscus, and passion flowers- climbed, and rambled, and pushed, and hung in heavy drapery, as best they could without attention or guidance.- "The Golden Silence", C. N. Williamson and A. M. Williamson.
