A beautiful flower. I love the dark pink and the lavender colors. There are over 200 varieties of all over the world. However, this flower is primarily found in warmer or tropical climates.
This Dupont-Gerlich hybridized tropical hibiscus bloom is called called Madame Dupont. It blooms as a single, but can also develop petaloids. I think it was named after Mr. Dupont's grandmother. I have been told that it will set seed and that its pollen is fertile.
