I picked this up at Lowe's. I'm guessing it is a variety of H. rosa-sinensis since it was mixed in with those. Any ideas on cultivar?

Hi Jay. It may be the El Capitolio cultivar Tequila Sunrise. https://toptropicals.com/cgi-bin/garden_catalog/cat.cgi?sear...


The Red cultivar I had 25 or 30 years ago was called El Capitolio Red Poodle . From what I have read, the first El Capitolio Hibiscus plants were from Cuba, and were thought to be a cross or H rosa-sinensis and H schizopetalus.

I can see why folks think that... http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFind...

Thanks Jean! Unfortunately with cultivars there is no way to know for sure so I just posted it under El Capitolio.

I got it at Lowe's on Memorial in Port Arthur. It was the only one like that was blooming and there were none with a tag for that variety. They did have a few others varieties. I picked up three different ones.

Thanks, Jay; I don't ever see these types of hibiscus in the Beaumont store - or maybe they're sold out before I see them?

I did trade with Anne, and I got the red El Capitolio from her and have enjoyed them; but your peach will be on my wish list.
