Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Fourth of July'

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Fourth of July'
Photo from The American Hibiscus Society, Inc.
I almost had my own photo of this Hibiscus as I have been watching a big bud swell and try and open in time for the occasion, but the week of rain ruined most of the Hibiscus flowers and now the days are not really warm enough for them to open properly. Roll on summer to continue the story.
This variety was bred by Curt Sinclair from a pod parent of 'Miss Liberty' and a pollen parent of 'Young Dreams'. The flowers are extra large and are produced in abundance on a tall bushy shrub.
2017 update: I currently have no stock available.
