 Hibiscus mutabilis
Family: Malvaceae
Confederate Rose, Cotton Rose, Common Rose Mallow
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Hibiscus mutabilis is downright conspicuous when in full bloom starting in late summer and on into fall. The flowers open pure white and change color over a three-day period until they are deep pink and then as they die assume a dark "blue-pink" hue. The most notable characteristic of this flowering shrub is that flowers of three distinct colors appear on the bush simultaneously as the blooms color cycle independent of one another. Single and double flowered varieties are available, both having quite large blossoms that are 3-5 in (8 - 13 cm) across. This shrub thrives on regular watering but this is optional as it is very drought tolerant. Propagate by cuttings, Confederate rose is easy to root.

3-day color change

Wow! 3 days to change? Here hibiscus flowers last only for a day and so H. mutabilis's flowers change colour within a few hours. During day=white, night=deep rose. Called 'Phak bor hua' (Beaten Wife Flower) in the local Hokkien dialect because of a folk tale (sigh!). Still looking for the plant, though.
