Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Double Rhonda D'
This tall growing bushy Hibiscus is a sport of Rhonda D which was bred by Geoff Harvey from a pod parent of 'Madang' and a pollen parent of 'Surfrider'. The flower form is unusual in that the petals are fused to the staminal column and appear as separate layers to just below the anthers. The colour is a rich hot pink at the centre with typical 'Surfrider' orange towards the petal edge. Flower size is medium and they stay open for two days in this cooler autumn weather.
