Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Melon Cocktail'

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Melon Cocktail'
 This is an Australian Hibiscus bred by John Richardson from a pod parent of 'Rosalind' and a pollen parent of 'Byron Metts'. It is a fully double flower suffused with shades of pastel orange and pink. It glows in the centre from a flush of bright flamingo pink. As the flower is quite heavy from the density of the petal formation it tends to hang its head so the blooms are noticed more from the top looking down or side on.
I am currently out of stock of this variety
