summer storm orcrown jewels?

Have a hibiscus that I have forgotten the name. Did a web image search and found 'crown jewel' and 'summer storm'. Both look the same to my hibiscus. Is there a way to differentiate between the two varieties?
Wish I could post a picture, but I am electronically challenged.

RE: summer storm orcrown jewels?

I'm not sure what is causing you to be confused about these two cultivars. The bloom color alone should help you decide.

Summer Storm = pink bloom, dark wine-purple, maple-like foliage

Crown Jewels = white bloom, maple cut leaves are dark reddish-brown

Here is a link that might be useful: Summer Storm
