Hibiscus storckii is one of the original species or native hibiscus plants whose genes contributed to the modern hybrid hibiscus varieties. Hibiscus storckii was discovered and named by a botanist visiting the island of Fiji in the 1800s. Expeditions to the island since then have not located any surviving examples of this species of hibiscus still growing on Fiji. The flowers vary from pale pink to bright pink. The bush grows very quickly, and is said to be small with cascading branches. Kew Botanical Gardens in England received cuttings of this species directly from the botanist who discovered it and fortunately has been able to grow it continually ever since. We were fortunate to obtain seeds of Hibiscus storckii last year, and finally have it available to our customers. New to HVH in 2010. Native species.
