A fully open hibiscus flower

Growing Hibiscus indoors in a country like Britain poses challenges. For one, these plants need to be grown inside the house all year round, and need good warmth and sunlight. But the troubles fade when the flowers begin to appear. Big red (or orange/white depending on the variety) short-lived flowers add much-needed splash of colour indoors and offer a hint of the orient!!
