The blooms on this unusual hibiscus are almost a neon color. It is a prolific bloomer and its growth habit does not resemble my other hibiscus plants' growth habits. It is a favorite of mine. I have attempted to start new plants from cuttings and seeds and have not been very successful. I have had only one cutting take root and no seeds have germinated. Thank you for your comments.
