I have lots of different hibiscus flowers but never seen this before. It was on a hibiscus that normally has only white flowers with small red centers.

Wow! Let us know if the bush produces other bi-colored flowers. That's amazing.

It often produces a flower that is part white and part pink although most are white. I don't see most of them because it is at my beach house where I only go about once a week. Now the plant is getting quite large I will ask my caretaker to take cuttings from any branch that produces a bicolor flower. Maybe I can produce a plant with mostly bicolor flowers.

Beautiful, I have a red Crape Myrtle that does that on second blooms after I cut back the first blooms.
