Common name: Monarch Rosemallow

I posted a picture on Dave's Garden. I was told it was a Monarch October Rose (and two or three other similar names). Is this the same flower? They said my plant was young so that is probably why the leaves were purplish. Do they change to green as they get older? My plant did not last through the winter and I want to replace it. I can't find any Hibiscus that looks like this.
