Having seen your other posts, you most definately live in hibiscus heaven. I like the depth throughout the flower, yet again another beauty.

I can't recall seeing a double bloom of that variety. The Queen Liliuokalani Graden has a single variety:

Very detailed shot and accurate colors.

Hey Selvin, here's a shot of the first bloom. It took 2 days to open

as these are very small plants so far. I purchased them on the internet

in quart containers. I imagine that once in the ground it will bloom

double all the time............. I prefer the single

John,

I agree, the single has more oomph and looks a lot better. I suspect your grafted double bloom plant has a branch of a single bloom stalk still remaining. I've got a snowflake variety that has the characterstic mottled white leaves on one half and pure green leaves on the other half. Both halves have the same flower tho.

Aloha

oh man, the color and the texture of that hibiscus.
well, i think some would agree that it belongs in the naughty looking plant category.
