I will admit that I'm not the one to be reviewing any Hibiscus as I've never grown any before. But, I must say that this one caught my eye this year.

I am using it as a foundation plant on one of the corners of my new home. It was planted there, in the spring and so far all is well. The color of the bloom is beautiful and reminds me of an creamsicle pop with that orange. The color beams and will catch your eye across the lawn. As the flower matures it reveals a salmon colored throat. The blooms are what I assume you would call a double and are currently measuring about 5". I can't wait until she settles into her new home and matures.
