It has been really hard to get a good photo of the flower that really represents the true color. The pics below are about as close as I have been able to come so far.

I like this plant, but it gets really tall on a single stalk. My main plant is probably about 11 feet now. The others that I have cut back a couple of time are about 5 ft to 6 ft and multi branch. Next year I would like to plant them in a close group and cut back even more aggressively, keeping them below 5 ft. This is a short day bloomer so it will be blooming when most other hibiscus are done for the year.
