Red Hibiscus - Customizable Flower Gifts

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.

A common flower of the Pacific Islands, the hibiscus, or ma 'o hau hele in Hawaiian, is the state flower of Hawaii. It is presented as a welcome gift to visiting state officials and tourists, often in the form of a necklace, or lei. Women also wear the bloom behind ears. Behind the left ear, a hibiscus represents the woman as a desirous lover; behind the right ear, the woman is taken; behind both ears, the woman is taken but prefers another lover. The hibiscus flower is also commonly seen as a tribal tattoo. It represents "old royalty," is meant to bring power and respect and is a sign of hospitality.
