This is an old fashioned heirloom hibiscus, dating back to the 1950's from Florida. It is now grown throughout the tropics. With miniature pink windmill type flowers, this tall growing shrub has thin stems and tiny leaves. If left unpruned, it has a slightly weeping habit. It sometimes sports pure white flowers, which are known as the cultivar 'Dainty White'. Makes a nice background shrub in a tropical landscape. USDA zones 9 - 12.
