I'm almost positive you're correct! It's one of the most commonly available varieties here. I just decided not to put the variety because its known by different names around the world. :>)

I keep forgetting that cultivar names aren't set in stone.

Yes, I've seen so many of our U.S. Hibiscus varieties posted on GoY from Australia. Their names are very different than ours (even though they're the same plant). I see the same thing with Plumeria varieties in different parts of the world.
