Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Pink Rays'

 Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Pink Rays'
This Australian Hibiscus has been on the scene for a long time so it could even be given the tag of 'old fashioned hardy variety'. It is an upright bushy fast grower and flowers from an early stage. The distinctive light cardinal red streaks over the cream petals are displayed in a recurved cartwheel formation and are complimented by the light orange stigma pads. Over summer the cream petals become flushed with a deeper pink and the whole flower draws the eye to the bush.
This Hibiscus was bred by Roy von Stieglitz from unknown varieties.
