'Candy Wind' Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
This cheerful pink hibiscus blossom with the scarlet throat is a patented cultivar, a product of a planned breeding program conducted in Florida by plant breeder Wendy R. Bergman. The Candy Wind Hibiscus is just one of Wendy's creations.
We bought the plant from a local garden shop here in Hawaii. It has been flourishing in our garden for nearly a decade.
