Abstract

Hibiscus cannabinus is a member of the Malvaceae. Willis (revised 1966) lists 75 genera for the family and 300 species of Hibiscus. Breeders have produced many varieties which vary in the form and colour of their leaves, stems, flowers and seeds and in their response to soil conditions, climatic condition and day length, as well as in the quality and yield of the fibre which they produce. It is not difficult for growers to select plants which are suitable for local conditions.
