Very rare variegated Turk's Cap, Firecracker Hibiscus.
Almost ever-blooming, this shrub looks much like a hibiscus (to which it is closely related) which flowers are ready to open. In fact, the flowers never open much, hence the common name of Sleepy Hibiscus. It blooms often, and the flowers attract hummingbirds. The 2 inch long tubular flowers appear to be constructed of crimson crepe paper as they nod against the large oval leaves, some leaves can be completely white! The little tree looks like decorated Christmas tree!
Can be kept compact shape and is good for container culture and bonsai.
