Hibiscus liliflorus is from Mascareignes islands which include Mauritius , Reunion and Rodrigues. This orange Hibiscus is endemics to Rodrigues; But can be found in some botanical garden or private collections. 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). Whereas the pink liliflorus is endemics to Reunion island.
