I purchased three hibiscus bushes/tress not sure. One of them(ounk/redish) never bloomed until today. The melon colored one had some sort of crown on it. And the white one from what I’ve been able to research is a rare one. I’d just like to identified the types of hibiscus they are and if they are hardy or tropical. I live in South Texas zone 9b I believe. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    You’re welcome dorygirl003! Please check with the experts from link above for the pinkish hibiscus’s identification to be sure. Its leaves and stamen are different compared to the hardy hibiscus types. Best wishes!

    These look like cultivars of tropical hibiscus, they are also called exotic hibiscus. Sorry, I don’t know their names. There are hundreds of hybrids from 8 different species. According to sources these cultivars are tender and can not withstand more than 30F. They will likely perish outdoor if the temperature drop below 24F. For further assistences, you might to get in touch of the experts at Best wishes!
