SNOW QUEENS I look up. The hibiscuses are invariably there! Peering through their snow-streaked leaves. Gazing down from the heights, Like inquisitive, spruced up socialites. Curious they are about their surrounds – What is in the air and on the ground. They twist and twirl in all directions Some looking up, others down. I spy a shy hibiscus concealed within the verdure. How can I ignore such a charmer? Does it suppose it would not be discovered there? I pluck it, knowing a new one will replace it elsewhere! ~ Caroline Street.
Hibiscus rosa-sinensis has many medicinal uses in Chinese herbology and it is used in India for hair-care purposes. They are making shampoos and extracts from the leaves and flowers for hair coloring, anti dandruff and preventing hair loss. ~ Dave’s Garden.
