Hibiscus is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family,Malvaceae. It is quite large, containing several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate,subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are often noted for their showy flowers and are commonly known as hibiscussorrel, and flor de Jamaica, or less widely known as rosemallow. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, as well as woody shrubs and small trees. The generic name is derived from the Greek word ἱβίσκος (hibískos), which was the name Pedanius Dioscorides (ca. 40-90) gave to Althaea officinalis
 Children In the Philippines especially in our "Barrio", 
used  gumamela   as part of a bubble-making pastime.

 Gumamela  composition is a lot like every other flower whose sole purpose is to help a plant reproduce.

 Its distinguishing features are large petals. 
  Often forming a trumpet-shape   
 a prominent stamen tube 
Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.  ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858
