I came across and article that says, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Shirley Temple', Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Anderson's Crepe' and Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Albo Lacinatus are the same plant. Albo Lacinatus being the original name (around two hundred year old).

Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Albo Lacinatus')

I'm sure you're right. Anderson Crepe and Anderson's Crepe are not registered CV names. There are two registered CV's named Shirley Temple, but they probably weren't ever available in commerce because there are no photos or descriptions of them anywhere, and the photos in our Shirley Temple entry look like Albo Lacinatus.

An admin will have to merge the three entries and make the appropriate changes.

Which one of the three should we keep? We'll then merge the other two into that one.

The Albo Lacinatus entry is the one with the correct name and the most plant growing data, but won't the merge tool send everything over to Shirley Temple because it has the lowest plant ID number? If so, then the name will have to be changed to Albo Lacinatus, the two additional names will have to be added as also-sold-as names, and the missing plant data will have to be added to that entry.
