The hibiscus tree can grow up to 20-30 feet but the flowers are 4 inch wide. They have a beautiful structure and can grow up to 4inch length. Hibiscus flowers are sometimes referred to as perfect flowers because of their well-defined structure.
Each flower has a male part and female part. The male part is called as stamen that has two long tubes called as anthers and thin tube called filament. Through these tubes the flower releases the pollen and the anthers sit on the filament.
The female part is called as pistil which is made up of ovary. The seeds develop in the ovary. There is a stigma in the female part that catches the pollen. The other parts of the hibiscus plant are sepals, receptacles and petals.
