I am confused about my Hibiscus. Someone on this forum told me it was a Texas Swamp Hibiscus. However the blooms do not look the same. The leaves resemble the Texas Swamp but not the blooms. Anyone help me determine which type of hibiscus I have.

The plant is over 60 years old. I transplanted it when moving. I was not able to get the whole plant, just a very small portion of it.

The plant is over 6 feet tall. I had to stretch to get the images.

The interspecific hybrid Hibiscus called 'Lord Baltimore' has been around since the 1950's. Check out the photos and compare. Smiling
