New Zealand (Zone 1) wrote:

Hibiscus Hawaiian Gina Marie - described as being white, pink, crepey and satiny, with ruffled heavy texture - has been grafted to improve vigour and hardiness, increasing its tolerance to collar rot and phytophthora. This evergreen hibiscus needs to be grown in a sheltered place protected from frosts in rich, well drained soil.
