'Fiji Sunshine' is a hardy, reliable old Fijian hibiscus with single yellow flowers that blush with apricot/gold as they age.
Tilly's inherited bush at Waihi Beach flowers for most of the year, as the area usually has no frosts. It just seems to keep on having a prolific amount of buds and flowers.
