Hibiscus – National flower of Malaysia February 21, 2007Posted by asianpixmen in Flora/Plants, Malaysia, Nature, Places.
I just found out that hibiscus, the national flower of Malaysia, has another name, Rosemallow. In fact, there are about 200-220 species of this flower plant that belongs to the Malvaceae group.
This species peculiar to Malaysia is the hibiscus rosa-sinensis or the Chinese hibiscus. It’s called Bunga Raya by Malaysians. By the way, hibiscus is also the state flower of Hawaii. How nice.
