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.

Hi liseals. Best thing you can do for your garden 

Learn your greens and browns. Lots of info online about which is which. Basically green living, brown dead. Don't get too hung up on it but try and add more browns than greens. This will keep your heap sweet.

Don't add meat or carbs or cooked unless you want vermin

Get a cover of some sort to put over when heap full to speed up rotting.

Thats about it really

 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.
