Advertisement I'm looking around my yard for the few maple leaves that fall into my yard form a neighbor's tree and I realize I may need to find other options. I just moved into my home a month ago so I have not identified all trees/plants on the property yet. I did identify one though, that seems to leave a love of leaves on the ground. Its a hibiscus bush called Rose of Sharon. Does anyone know if hibiscus leaves are safe to use for leaf litter?
