Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, more commonly known as the Chinese hibiscus, China rose and Shoe flower, is an evergreen flowering shrub native to East Asia. The flowers are large, generally red in the original varieties, and firm, but generally lack any scent. Numerous varieties and hybrids are available, with flower colors ranging from white through yellow and orange to scarlet and shades of pink, (and some reds so dark they appear to be black). Flowers have both single and double sets of petals. *
In many parts of Asia, in addition to being used for medicinal purposes, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is still used to stimulate thicker hair growth, prevent hair loss and scalp disorders, prevent pre-mature gray and help retain natural color of hair.
