    hi, I was hoping that someone can identify this hibiscus that my grandmother planted. Its only ever flowered once, and I didn't believe it was a hibiscus untill she showed me a picture of it with the flowers. I'm having a hard time tracking it's name down (I want to get her some more as its died off when she took a trip to California for a few weeks) so that I can get her another sapling to plant. I'm sure she knows the name, but her English isn't the best in the world...

    Here is a picture of the plant

    Thanks for your help~ <3

    Looks like Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Roseflake'.
