Cannabis hibiscus?

juneroses Z9a Cntrl FlMay 4, 2006

A number of weeks ago I went to a Master Gardeners' sale here in Central Florida. One of the vendors had an attractive plant which I think he called cannabis leaf hibiscus. I saw so many interesting things at the sale that I didn't write down a description of the plant I saw, figuring I could search here or on Google and learn more about it.

However, I get no hits on cannabis hibiscus. Does anyone here know of this plant or a hibiscus with nearly the same sounding name which I have misinterpreted?

Thanks - June (who is definitely NOT into cannabis otherwise!)

It's because you're spelling it wrong...;)
It's Hibiscus cannabinus.
I grew one last year and liked it. It was a low shrub with very pretty flowers.
