It is indeed Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) but there are so very many cultivars that it's hard to know which one that beauty might be. Lovely photo!

Thank you Lin! Do you think i can enter it into the data base as "Tropical Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (var. ?), or is it better not to add it because the variety is unknown?

Hi, Vit. The entry for Hibiscus rosa-sinensis should be reserved for photos of the species hibiscus, so it would be better to add your photo to this page:
