This beautiful tropical hibiscus has bloomed both inside (with bright light) and outside for me in Fort Worth, Texas (zone 7-8). Outside I have it in a large pot, and it will freeze and die here if not taken inside in the winter. It is extremely hardy and free flowering, one of my favorites so far.

H. "White Wings" the pads are red
H. "Versicolor White" the pads are yellow
So from the pad color of these photos they are of "Versicolor White"
It's a very common mistake. Many Nurseries call VW WW. So it's easy to mix up.
