I bought this hardy hibiscus about three years ago and also its mate, but I can't remember the names. Would anyone have any idea of the names I might be looking for?

Sorry, I forgot to say that the other one is pink.

I've been searching catalogs and I am pretty sure they were tagged Lord and Lady Baltimore. Thanks you two for your help. I'll keep searching to make sure.

Brugie, that's very possible.

Here's Hibiscus moscheutos Lady Baltimore: http://plantsdatabase.com/go/37923/

Lord Baltimore is described as red, but we have no photo: http://plantsdatabase.com/go/40923/ Here's a good shot for comparison: http://www.hort.net/gallery/view/mal/hiblb/ (If that's a match, we'd love to have your photo in the PDB :)

I went out and looked at Lord Baltimore and it has the Marijuanna type leaves on it, where the Disco Belle has larger wider type leaves, so my guess, Lord B.

Thanks MVR, but this is a hardy hibiscus to our zone 5. It is definitely Lord Baltimore.
