Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Crown of Bohemia'

 Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Crown of Bohemia'
 This wonderful old Californian variety of Hibiscus dates form 1958. It was bred by Vavra from a pod parent of 'Rhonda D. Sport' and a pollen parent of 'Harvey' (Reference: Stanley Palmer)
 What a rich colour this flower is, a true old gold with just enough signal red showing around the base of the petals to enliven it more.
