Sí, sabía que el latín y el español no son lo mismos. Gracias. Los latinios hablan español..no.
Other Latin speaking people? No one speaks Latin any more, in any case, but the word "hibiscus" is originally Latin! (from the ancient Rome, not Latin-American). The word is used in Spain, but maybe the people from all those SPANISH speaking countries (not Latin!) you asked simply didn't know the plant well, or had a regional name for it. "Hibisco" is in the dictionary, and it is from Latin origin, as I said.Sí, sabía que el latín y el español no son lo mismos. Gracias.

Aquí en el norte de México (que hoy día se llama Alta California, o simplemente California), hay una agua fresca que se llama jamaica, la cual se hace de la flor hibisco. ¿La palabra jamaica tiene algo que ver con hibisco, o no'

Gracias. ....that was easy...jajaja. I have heard from other Latin speaking people san jacomin or something close to that. What country uses hibisco? It is no familiar in Colombia, Mexico or Cuba. I have asked.

Hi Douglas.
If you didn't find "hibiscus" in your own dictionary, we have a good one to your disposal: Double click on "hibiscus" or any word takes you to the dictionary page.

Good luck!
