If it set itself from seed it won't come true to a cultivar. Do you have any Hibiscus syriacus?

How about "red heart"?

At my house, the seedlings look the same as the parent tree...

Although... I do have the lavender "Minerva" (also), and there are slight colour variations

I have Hibiscus Red Heart, the petals are much fuller and overlapping with a slightly bigger red eye.

It's close to Lil' Kim which is a 'proven winners' cultivar but there has to be more similar cultivars, and if grown from seed it couldn't be given the cultivar name.

That sounds highly likely! A free gift like that can't be bad.
