Originated from Hawaii, Hibiscus tiliaceus, commonly known as the sea hibiscus or coast cottonwood,is a species of flowering tree. The flowers are bright yellow with a deep
red center upon opening. Over the course of the day, the flowers deepen to
orange and finally red before they fall. The branches of the tree often
curve over time. The leaves are heart shaped with deep red veins.

Interesting: Besides being such a great ornamental tree, Hibiscus tiliaceus has many traditional uses around the world. In Tahiti, the leaves were wrapped around food to be cooked, and were also used as plates. The leaves are fed to cattle in Southeast Asia. The roots and young shoots are reported to have been eaten by aborigines in Queensland. The Polynesians ate the young leaves and used the bast fibres to make ropes and the adult bark to make "tapa", a traditional clothing used in pre-European Polynesia. A Singaporean source states that the fibre is used for strings and ropes for making fishing nets and caulking boats. In Hawaii the wood is used to make outrigger canoes. Several medicinal uses are listed as well, including to cool fevers and soothe coughs!
