Hibiscus is from the old Greek and latin names for a type of large mallow. Militaris from the latin meaning "soldierly", most likely for the plants erect and imposing appearance; possibly for the halberd -shaped leaves.

One of the most spectacular of the woodland species due to its size and color; the petals can reach 3 inches in length. The pink to cream colored blossoms have a deep purple blotch at the base making the center of the flower appear much darker than it actually is.

No medicinal or food uses reported.
