Hibiscus liliflorus is from Mascareignes islands which include Mauritius , Reunion and Rodrigues. This Hibiscus is found mostly in Rodrigues now. It is easily recognised by it's leaves which are rather oval in shape. Flowers are small and bright-orange in colour. Time to time can be seen in nurseries.(for e.g at Labourdonnais or Endemica in the north)
