Hibiscus denisonii 'La Orotava'

180 (240)cm, Hibiscus denisonii is an unresolved species which was supposedly native on the island of Fiji. However, it has never been found in the wild and it does not look similar to any other wild Hibiscus species in section Lilibiscus found on Fiji. The rose flowering and more compact form 'La Orotava' appears to be an old polyploid hybrid. It is fully self-fertile and seedlings are uniform with the same traits as the mother plants - both being rather unusual for a hybrid. Thus it either is a valid species which is extinct in the wild or a very old and stabilized hybrid. This rose flowering plant is sometimes confused with Hibiscus storckii, which is a different species and which is actually not in cultivation. All plants sold as Hibiscus storckii are in fact Hibiscus cooperi. Hibiscus denisonii is an evergreen species with glossy dark green leaves and ornamental, pale rose flowers with or without some more pinkish shade. Easily grown in any rich, well drained substrate in full sun throughout the year and reduced watering in winter at a minimum of 20°C. True to type seeds are worldwide exclusively available from Rareplants.eu . Seeds from all Hibiscus species in section Lilibiscus (e.g Hibiscus arnottianus, Hibiscus cooperi, Hibiscus denisonii, Hibiscus fragilis, Hibiscus genevii, etc. ) germinate unevenly over a period of several months. Keep pots in a warm spot and the soil slightlly moist until germination will occur. VI-X.
