Botanical name: Hibiscus pedunculatus

The forest pink hibuscus, Hibiscus pedunculatus, is a small, hardy, evergreen shrub growing 1-2 meters tall. Its rough, sandpapery, lobed leaves have star-shaped hairs. Slender stems bear large, pale pink, hibiscus-like flowers blooming October-May on long stalks. Easy-to-grow and thrives in sun or partial shade with regular watering.  Native to forest edges and coastal bush, Hibiscus pedunculatus works great as a garden feature or container plant. It propagates easily from seeds or cuttings.
