Do I have a hybrid?

humblestumble(9a)May 23, 2007

I got this from Lowe's, but I am new to hibiscus growing. Does anyone know the name of this hybrid? I think it's a hybrid.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Sometimes digital cameras give an shade or two off color but it looks like a Jane Cowl that is a double peach colored hibiscus. I always find it sad when nurseries don't sticker or label their cultivars. Unfortunately many big boxes are bad about this kind of info although there are exceptions on both sides of the retail isle.

I agree with David, it looks like Jane Cowl. Isn't it gorgeous? We have them at the nursery where I work. Love 'em!
Not to be picky, but what you probably meant to ask was, do you have a cultivar of a hibiscus, (which is from the crossing of two diffferent types of the same species). A hybrid would be from two different species.
The formal name for your plant is Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Jane Cowl'.
Anywho...Enjoy her!
