Thanks! This is a very common variety. I can't remember the name, though (and I used to have this one).

Thanks! I do like it, also. At one time I had many varieties of Hibiscus...now I only have one.

Gorgeous!!! There are lots and lots of hibiscus here - but I haven't seen this one...How big do they get?

Thanks! Yes, Hibiscus is a very widely grown shrub and tree here. This variety grows to 8ft/2.3m tall...although, some varieties can grow to 30ft/10m high.

It's the first double one that I've seen............

Meanie:

It is...I've posed many dozens of double Hibiscus varieties in the past. Virtually all the colors (red, pink, yellow, peach, salmon, white and purple) have a double variety.

As I tend to dislike double flowers I may have "missed" them!

But the combination of colour and curled petals deceived me this time!!!
