Dainty Pink Hibiscus @ Home

A symbol for delicate beauty
The Dainty Pink Hibiscus is a tropical flower that has shown some grace over our flower pot. Elegant light to medium pink, the hibiscus flourishes throughout much of the year. Dainty Pink or La France Hibiscus, a vigorous upright grower with immense flower power is an old heirloom tropical hibiscus cultivar, which is believed to likely be the result of hybrid cross.

Hibiscus Pink
Dainty Pink hibiscus is also frequently confused with Anderson’s Crepe Pink, which is similar in color but has larger blooms, as well as a larger and more weeping growth habit. It is typically genetically unstable and will frequently suddenly develop an odd limb with a white or pink and white striped flower. Although it is a very beautiful and versatile plant for the tropical landscape, by the mid 1980s it had virtually disappeared from the commercial market, as it is not well suited to mass production, storage and transport.

Light pink color is lovely, but I also like the dark red hibiscus that we get outside. It's a bold color :)

Lovely colour. And this flower stays fresh for a long time too. I love white hibiscus also of this type. They stay fresh longer than the other varieties.

So lovely and a delight for the eye, or eye-candy as my sons would say. I gave a red hibiscus to my brother-in-law about 15 years ago and he still gets blooms on it in his front porch that has a skylight, but he lives near Seattle. You are right, as I don't see many for sale these days.
