I received Tamibon from the hibiscus coop as a rooted liner last March. The first couple of blooms refused to open, but I think I had the plant in too much shade.
This plant has large flowers, thick upright stems, and large (somewhat curling) leaves.
The flower is about 9 inches across and only lasts 2 days. The full color is not developed until day 2.
