Hibiscus

Hibiscus is a beautiful flower that comes in a number of colors and is also known as rose-mallow in some areas. Other than its beauty it is also used to make beverages in some countries like tea and juices. In Mexico dried Hibiscus is eaten and is considered a delicacy.

They are required to bring inside the house during cold temperatures at night.
