Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Mrs Andreasen'

Flowers full ruffled, double, to 18 cm wide, pale apricot with occasional pink slashes and tonings, prolific. Habit bushy, 3-4 m tall.

Discovered by Dennis Andreasen of Andreasen's Nursery at Beverley Hills, Sydney, in the late 1950s or early '60s; it was a sport of 'Mrs George Davis' and sometimes reverts back, hence the name 'Peaches and Cream' that is occasionally used. ['Beryl May', 'Peaches and Cream']
