We've just returned from a holiday in Malta, where we saw the most beautiful hibiscus. It was a creamy pale yellow, with red veins leading to a deep red centre. I would love to have a go at growing this. Does anyone know the name of this variety? An internet search hasn't proved very successful!



It may well have been a form of hibiscus rosa-sinensis which is not hardy in the UK. The nearest I can think of which you could grow outdoors in H.syriacus 'Red Heart'
