Re: RE: Fringed hibiscus

Don't know, Andrea. The one I photographed is at Selby Botanical Garden. "Plant Finder" doesn't list any growers. I recall doing a Google search once and not finding anyone who had them for sale. I probably would not have known about them at all if a customer at the nursery had not asked one of the designers to incorporate some in her landscape at about the same time I was reading Julia F, Morton's "500 plants of South Florida [1981]," which has a picture of it on the dust jacket.

It has a weepy growth habit, somewhat like the Crape Anderson hibiscus [the one that's grown as a small tree]. The flowers are really sensational.
