'Divinity'? I'm trying to identify a pure white variety with yellow stamens that I have. I thought it was 'Blue River II' but now after seeing this on Lowe's website I'm not sure. I haven't seen of heard of it anywhere else. If anyone has can you please tell me what you know about it?

Can you post a picture showing the flower and foliage to help in ID'ing your Hibiscus? There are so many types of "Hardy Hibiscus" a picture could help with the search.

Thanks for reply, Rosie. Here is an *attempt* at posting pics. Not sure I know what I'm doing...

That didn't work, obviously. Let me try again. Using the correct code might help...

I'm guessing it's a BRII. Correct?

Hibiscus moscheutos Possibly "Blue River" or "Snow White Delight" I'm not having any luck finding a cultivar named "Divinity"

I'll do some more Googling tomorrow...my eyes are burned out for the day. :-)

Thanks for the follow up, Rosie. I forgot to mention that the plant is currently a little over 5 ft. tall, if that means anything. I don't know how tall it will get though. This is its second year and it seems to have grown quite a bit bigger and taller this year over last. I would think it would be reaching its peak soon. Haven't heard of many moscheutos getting over 6 ft. tall.
