Envy was hybridized in Australia or New Zealand and to my knowledge, has not been imported to the US. At least my efforts to locate the plant have been unsuccessful.
Whatever the beautiful Hibiscus shown in the photo for the Envy page is, I'm afraid it's not Envy. Envy is described and pictured in other sources as a large, ruffled lemon yellow to almost chartreuse with overtones of green, hence the name. If I could find the plant, I'd buy it in a minute.
