can someone ID this beauty for me?

I found this pretty TH while taking a walk the other day.

Today, I went back and photgraphed it.

The gentleman told me it was willed to him by a little ol' lady and that he thought it was called Silver Lady or something.

I thought he was going to give me a cutting, but instead, he broke off only a bloom for me...*sigh.

I'm posting a couple of photos I took...the bloom is a day or two old so the color isn't as fresh as previously.

Does anyone know the name of it?

I'd love to find one!

Thanks in advance.

I checked thge International Hibiscus Society's cultivar database and think it might be Silver Thorn. I put the URL below.
I'm on two hibioscus listservs. I'll ask on those.
I know this bloom has been shown by members of one of the groups.
