Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Ben Lexcen'

 Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Ben Lexcen'
This wonderful rich apricot coloured Hibiscus with its pale pink eye zone is named for the late 'Sailing Australian' Ben Lexcen (1936-1988), as naval architect and yachtsman, he was 'a designer prepared to look for and try ideas that were outside the mainstream.'
This a Les Beers Hibiscus bred from 'Miss North Miami' x 'Joan Kitchen'. It was registered in 1985.
