Dating to the Victorian era, when flowers adorned clothing, stationery, wallpaper, hats, china and jewellery the hibiscus means “delicate beauty,” relating to the sunny and delicate conditions under which it will bloom and to the fragility and beauty of its flower. Today, “delicate beauty” is the common meaning of the hibiscus when used in flower arrangements or given as a gift. In North America it is commonly known as the “rose of Sharon” and symbolizes the “perfect bride”: fruitful, of beauty and one with God.
