Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Elandem'
The French word 'elan' means ardor or zeal inspired by passion or enthusiasm and it is appropriate to use when describing this flower. Coloured tie-dye crushed strawberry it certainly draws the eye and the bush itself is vigorous and robust with glossy healthy foliage. The flower formation is of two layers of five petals with a solo petal fused to the staminal column. The stigma pads are bright apricot.
As this is an unregistered cultivar I have no background information as to who bred it or when it was released. It bears some similarity to the Fred Westerman 'Crested Candy' so it may be one from his breeding program .
