It starts out pale pink as seen above. This is what it looks like in the late afternoon. Dark rose pink

Oh, you have the white to pink. I really like that one. That is the most dramatic. I had one, but it died.
Thanks for posting.

Molly, it is 4 or 5 years old. I got it from Rose Lee at a swap.

Glengarry:
the botanical name is hibiscus mutabilis. It is of the mallow and cotton family.
I wish I could send you some cuttings, but that is probably illegal.
