Can anybody help me by identifying this plant please.
sorry Dolores, I can't do that one. I'm sure someone will though
Never seen it in my life before Your Honour
i tried to picture it without the variegation but still couldn't do it
Silver surfer, are you here?
Don't know what it is, but I'd like one!
Got me stumped too,interesting plant though.
Looks like Sea Hibiscus, see link below
Some of the small new leaves look green and yellow, not green and white, I think it has something wrong with it. Saying that I would still have no idea what it is.
Sue I think you are right. Hibiscus most definitely but which one I don't know. There are many variegated ones and most of them not hardy.
swiss sue is right
Swiss Sue it is definitely not Hibiscus as I have one and it has a different leaf.
it looks like the one in 2 wheel's link,
strange that the flowers never fully open (according to link)
Don't think I'll be getting one
Thanks to everybody who replied. It is hibiscus syriacus.
I stand corrected! It is the variegated hibiscus 2 Wheel Gardener
The leaves can vary Rosebud especially if the plant is young but basically they are heart shaped, a vein runs through the middle and the leaves point down. Also the flowers always grow from the base of the leaf like that. Pretty sure it is one.
