This is a beautiful double-petaled Hibiscus that resembles a rose plant. The flowers take on a whitish light pink hue before gradually turning dark pink. The leaves are also slightly lobed, making it an unusual Hibiscus.

Along the street, we saw this beautiful clump of Hibiscus from afar in a weeding garden that looked like a small tree. I wonder how long it took for it to grow to this size.

Too bad the flowers are ephemeral and don't last very long.
