Description:
This name is used to refer to at least two species of the genus Hibiscus of the Malvaceae family. These shrubs, which reach a height of 2 meters, are usually found along the hedges near houses as decorative plants, and the flowers are commonly sold, because they have many uses in the local culture and come in a variety of colors: white, yellow, orange, different shades of pink or red. The very thick, red-colored flowers are known as tulipán relleno, stuffed tulip in Spanish, while the red and yellow flowers are known as tulipán payaso, clown tulip. The species Hibiscus schizopetalus, which has red petals with a feathery texture, is known as tulipán araña, spider tulip. The tulip with 5 petals is placed on recent graves and to mark the place where the body of the deceased lay while vigil was being kept at his or her home. In these cases, the flowers are collected once they have dried out and are used during other moments of the mourning process. Tulips are also used to decorate the bedroom of a bride when her virginity is confirmed.
