Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Grapette'

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Grapette'
Of the lavender/grey flowering Hibiscus, my favourite has to be 'Peggy Walton' which has a contrasting red 'eye' in the centre of the bloom which lifts the pale grey flower.
This is a prolific flowering variety however with medium sized blooms about 15cm across. on a strong upright bush.
'Grapette' is from Florida and was bred by Gordon and Evelyn Howard from 'Topaz Glory' x 'Tylene'.
