aka: hibiscus moscheutos

Member @laszloszakszon posted this pic awhile back, but didn't have its name.....
Now I really really really want it! Hilarious!
And there's no match for the photo in the database.

Anybody know the name to shop for?

That looks pretty likely!

I mailed Laszlo directly - he still isn't sure about the name, so I sent him your link.

I wasn't quite sure if the color was right, but it is close...different monitors/camera settings... hope it helps.

Here is another link that may be of use.

I think Heartthrob might be the one.
But even if it's not exactly the one, it's a great one!

I've seen heartthrob in person its deep red like wine, not dark like first photo might not be it.

Wondering if that's actual color or lighting conditions.....
If it really isn't Heartthrob though, I'm Still hoping someone can identify it.
