Hibiscus mabberleyi spec. nov. (Mabberley's Hibiscus)

180 (240)cm, Mabberley's Hibiscus is an in 2023 new described species which is extinct in nature, where it was supposedly native to some Mascarene islands. Few specimens are still grown by botanical gardens and a handful of private cultivators, where this species had been labelled Hibiscus denisonii until recently. Hibiscus mabberleyi has finely pubescent leaves. There are at least two genetic lines still alive in cultivation, one with white flowers upon opening, later fading to very pale rose (photo), and a second and much rarer one with flowers which will stay white. The rose flowering form is sometimes confused with Hibiscus x denisonii or Hibiscus storckii, which both are different taxa. All plants sold as Hibiscus storckii are in fact Hibiscus cooperi. 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 .
