White Hibiscus in Florida

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Swan Lake' syn. 'Dainty White' syn. 'White La France'

This is another familiar old garden Hibiscus which has been grown for decades since its introduction from Florida. The pure white flower, which is occasionally flushed with green or cream on the petal edges, is a miniature windmill type of about 125mm and it originally appeared as a sport on 'Dainty Pink'. Pink flowers may still sometimes occur depending on the time of year. This is a very tall growing bush with whip-lash stems covered in only tiny leaves. If left un-pruned it develops a slightly weeping habit with age. The fashion for trimmed and pruned-within-an-inch-of-their-life shrubs has left this Hibiscus out in the cold somewhat but it is certainly worth including in a wild tropical style garden where a splash of white tempers more hot vibrant colours of foliage and flowers.


Hemp paper - great stuff, Kenaf - already legal

Kenaf makes an even better paper than hemp. The botanical name is Hibiscus cannabis and it looks rather like marijuana, though the two are not related. Buy kenaf paper if you can. The only company in the U.S. that produces kenaf paper is Vision Paper in New Mexico.
I like your 7 steps by the way, especially the 7th.
Tree pulp is not an optimal material for paper making. An elaborate series of steps is necessary to mechanically and chemically break down the rigid source material into usable pulp, and further processes are needed to render it white and smooth enough for printing
