I think this a tropical hibiscus. I want another and am hoping someone can guess its name. It's a little buggy right now and not as glamorous as it can be but it's my favorite. Thanks!

I'm afraid I have one too. I believe this is a hardy hibiscus, but the flower and leaves are quite different. Bloom is about 7" across. Can anyone help?
The plant,, when mature, reaches a height of up to 9' on a sturdy 3/4 to 1" stem. Bloomks all summer and develops seed approximately the size, shape and hadness of a peppercorn.

The red one is Texas Red Star. They are quite hardy, at least to zone 5 with no protection. There is also a Texas White Star.

Fori, I believe that that's a Double Yellow Hibiscus.
