I have had this plant prior to its supposed introduction as 'Terri's Pink'. I've grown this plant since 1970. I purchased it from a NJ nursery. It was marketed as Hibiscus mutabilis 'Rubrus' or 'Rubrum'. The plant had a Monrovia Nursery "Distinctively Better" tag on it. I believe it is identical to the H paramutabilis 'Terri's Pink' introduced by Treesearch Farms in Houston. Plant Delights Nursery is trying to research this plant for me. By any name it is a wonderful hibiscus.

I am sad that the discussion I had hoped to begin was lost and or ignored. There are forms of the so-called Confederate Rose of the species H. mutabilis that are most likely H. paramutabilis. They all are very similar and some may ask "why bother?". One reason is that one may have a much longer bloom period...(as may be the case for H. paramutabilis). Well, having been in the retail nursery business for the last 15 years or so and another 20 years of plant experience before that it makes a big difference when I cannot find the plant I am looking for because some nurseryman decides to give it a name other than what it is!

At any rate please go to this web site for the South China Botanical Garden Herbarium (IBSC) through ... read more

Introduced by Treesearch Farms, Houston. Unlike reg. confederate rose that just blooms in fall, Terri's pink blooms summer and fall. Beautiful bright pink flowers.
