'Dainty White'

'Dainty White' is a very rare, early garden variety hibiscus that blooms with hundreds of pure white 3" mini blooms per day. The bush grows very vigorously, very fast and very tall with many branches. It then develops a graceful weeping shape that makes a huge bush covered with white flowers like a snowstorm of hibiscus flowers. 'Dainty White' is a sport or a natural genetic mutation of its mother hibiscus, 'Dainty Pink.' Both varieties were either collected or hybridized in the early 1950's by Florida growers Norman Reasoner and L.K. Thompson, who were known recipients of hibiscus specimens sent back to the United States by Ross Gast in his journeys around the world in search of native hibiscus species.
