Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Patricia Noble'



Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Patricia Noble'
This Hibiscus is a real winner. It is a two day bloom which starts off a peach pink colour before deepening to a salmon orange. The background colour is buff which shows through in some patches and therefore makes the pink look as if it has been washed on with a watercolour brush. It is a large 18cm wide bloom with fully overlapped ruffled petals. The bonus is the foliage which is glossy and quilted with most leaves being orbiculate in shape. It appeared as a sport of 'Ross  Estey' which is a soft rose pink suffused with apricot and is also highly recommended.
2017 update: I am currently out of stock.
