Based on just the photograph and without a description of the height of the Hibiscus and a better view of the leaves, I suspect this may be Hibiscus Crown Jewels but I don’t have a high confidence level in the identification.
I had also considered Hibiscus Luna White and Hibiscus Disco Belle White which have green leaves but rejected them because they don’t have a streaky red-eye. The streaky red-eye is a signature of the Fleming Brothers. Post the additional information when you have it.
Michael, this is a photo of the leaves. It was really sunny. The leaves are tattered because of the big hail storm we had.
The plant is about 2 1/2 feet tall. I do not know if this will help but I do appreciate your effort.
I think I am going to put the HH names on boulders big enough the mow and blow guys cannot move them. They are not suppose to even be in the flower gardens. Sharon
* Winter hardy.
* Dwarf height.
* White flower.
* Streaky red-eye.
* Green leaves.
With the exception of the green leaves, this is a near perfect description of Hibiscus Crown Jewels. What is the color of the unopened buds? Crown Jewels is described as having yellow buds. As you indicated, your leaves have been damaged and it would be interesting to see the photographs on undamaged leaves if new ones emerge. With the information which has been provided, I am unable to find anything which is a perfect match.
It sounds like you need these markers in your garden. I have recovered “lost” plants after a number of years where the markers were buried and forgotten. Be sure to use a paint pen to mark the tags, as ink markers will fade.
