Hibiscus is a flower we do not get tired with. Maybe that's one of the reasons why both the scientists and the enthusiasts keep on breeding them, and never get bored trying to produce lots of variations in their results. There are those who want to produce a certain hue, while others want to produce certain shapes. But definitely, it is the novelty of whether hue, venation, size, shape or their combinations that make a certain hybrid very famous, or sought after by collectors.
