Tropical hibiscus 'Peach Blow' (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) is a sport of 'Island Empress'. The blooms are up to 16 cm wide and are pale pink with a carmine center.

Update 08/05/10 - My beautiful plant that was in a very large container died down during the extremely cold winter with temperatures in the low teens. It did not come back from its roots even though it was protected with several blankets during freezing and below temperatures. I am very sad because it was one of my favorite and most unusual plants.
