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?

Yep, definitely El Capitolio. It comes in red and orange too!

Hi Jay. It may be the El Capitolio cultivar Tequila Sunrise. https://toptropicals.com/cgi-b...


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.missouribotanicalga...

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.
