Hello, Hibiscus folks! I was at Lowe's today picking up a few things and they had quite a few varieties of Hibiscus for sale. I took some pictures for the database, but some of the ones I saw aren't listed. Can you guys help me out and let me know if the tag has something spelled wrong, if they're known by an alternate name, or if they do indeed need to be added to the database? I don't know much about Hibiscus so I appreciate your help.

This one was called 'Tequila Yellow' and I see many similar names in the database, but not that exact one.

This one is 'Sunset Yellow'.

This one is 'Jane Cowel'.

I added this one to the database, but could you double check me? It was being sold as 'Fort Myers' but I think the full name is 'Fort Myers Yellow' so that's where I added it. Please tell me if I was wrong and I'll move it.

Jane Cowell is there because I added a pic I took at Lowe's myself.

Thanks, Jay! I thought the spelling looked a little weird for 'Cowel'.
