Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Cooperi' var. 'Rose Flake'

     Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Cooperi' 'Rose Flake'
Flushed with nearly all pink leaves and the odd small red flower, this Hibiscus is at its best right now. However as this is a heat loving variety, a true tropical, it loses form as soon as the weather cools down. Last winter it became almost leafless and took awhile to regain vigour in the warmer months. As such I have yet to get enough suitable growth from which to take cuttings and propagate new plants of it. I might have to bring it indoors over winter this year.
