I started writing this and decided the description my hubby was giving me was just not enough to even ask anyone to try to think about and accidently posted and couldn't figure out how to delete

You won't believe it the plant my husband was trying to explain to me was a Arcturus tropical hibiscus.

LOL, My husband's description of any plant is "That green plant growing in the side yard" or "You know, that plant out next to the porch." :greengrin:

In the database we have a few Tropical Hibiscus with "Arcturus" as part of the common name but no photo's:

Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Arcturus')

Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Tahitian Arcturus King')

Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Tahitian Arcturus Pearl')

Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Tahitian Arcturus Queen')

I googled house plants that bloom all year and found it.I got the name from a web site http://www.trop-hibiscus.com/gindr.html
My hubby looked at the pictures on the page and pointed to that one and said that's it.Maybe i can talk to the people about getting a picture but i will have to wait for a while.It's the man that he works with & his wife that have the plant.It was given to them when their 2nd son died of MD 6 months after their 1st son died of it.

He says it's really special to them because it blooms all year long,more in the summer but always has blooms!! Lovey dubby
