Ocean Hibiscus / Jade Hibiscus / Thousand-Year-Old Wormwood / Hibiscus / Hibiscus Chrysanthemum
Chinese wormwood likes warm, dry and sunny places. Yet not only can it stand salty and windy environs but also cold and lack of sunshine. It is said its roots can heal rheumatism and therefore people often make medicinal wine with it. It can also remove poison from one’s body and strengthen the lungs. Chinese wormwood can even heal knife wounds. This highly popular plant is taken as an auspicious garden symbol.
