That's a beautiful plant/flower, I like the double flower ones......I took some cuttings from my SIL's RoS plant.....they took right off when I put them in potting soil in a bucket.....I've attached a pic

This is a beautiful photo but I don't believe it's Minerva. Minerva is a single bloom hibiscus. We have had several reports on this one. Do you have any idea what cultivar it might be I hate to remove such a good photo? Please let me so we can remove it or get it in it's rightful place. Thanks

Mystic, I'm not sure if you are talking to me or not, if so, I know that mine are not the double flowering RoS plant.
