About plant names...

This hibiscus cultivar is not found in the wild in North America. Their large, beautiful flowers are favorites with gardeners. As you can see, I can’t stop taking photos of it.

Identification: Plants reach 4-5' (1.2-1.5 m) in height, and about 24-48" (60-121 cm) around. Stems may be green, red, or woody. Leaves are roughly oval, narrow, or split into several lobes; they may be even on the edges, or toothed. Trumpet-shaped brilliant red blooms, with five or more petals, 6-10" (15-25 cm) in diameter, opening in late summer. Flowers have numerous stamens that form a single, long tube at the center.
