Dinu has a hibiscus he recently put in the Plants Database - his information refers to it as H. elcapitolio (or elcapitolia), and for the life of me I can't find that plant name anywhere on the web. Right now we don't have a common name for it - we can always call it "Hibiscus" but I'm hoping we can find a more specific common name for it.

I'm wondering if it perhaps has a synonym - does anyone have any ideas what it might be? (It sure is a beautiful plant, whatever we call it :)

Full marks to MaVieRose - she has actually hit the nail on its head!! Mine is exactly the same in that picture. Not for nothing this place called DG is so obsessive :)

go_vols, you can make the necessary changes in the database. The name was printed as a single word in the ref. book and nothing now can prevent me from correcting it.

I have made the changes in the database, g0_vols.

Thanks, MaVie! I don't know why it didn't occur to me that it was a variety name - I was beating the bushes looking for a species by that name. I even went to that same site, but to no avail :)

(Dinu, I put the photo with H. rosa-sinensis and added the variety name to the caption.)
