    That is an amazing flower, Pixie. Absolutely gorgeous & it is such a beautiful double. I am a sucker for double flowers. :love:

    Have never heard of such a hibiscus before, but, then again, I know very little about them. :lol: Thank you for posting your pics & telling us about this wonderful plant.

    PS Bruiser & I are actually in your state right now but "only" 2000kms south of you, in Brisbane. :D

    Only one thing with that Hibiscus here is aftyer the flowers are all finished they are gut down to 1 ft off the ground ,if we don't prune in this manner they grow long and lanky and the flower size suffers.

    A good haircut does most hibiscuses good, doesn't it, Pixie?? Our hibiscus schizopetalus plants don't mind this at all. Your's would have some wonderful new growth each year in your climate.
