Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Tammy Faye'

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Tammy Faye'
This flower is huge, like a dinner plate size. I am not sure how to describe the colour. It is flushed with pink and orange and changes colour depending on the light. The flower is heavy, with a crepe-de-chine texture, so tends to hang its head.
This is an American variety developed by Florida Colors Nursery.
Grafting onto suitable rootstock is essential to grow this variety well. It grows to about 1.5 metres and develops into a bushy shrub.
