Flower Identification – Hibiscus

(Question)

Is there someone who may be able to help me identify the flowers from photos taken at Allan Gardens?

For the hibiscus flower I think it might be: Hibiscus rosa-sinensis ‘Tylene’.

Any guidance you have is much appreciated.

We have checked with the superintendent of Allan Gardens and have learned that this plant was donated, so they have never known the variety. Apparently, many of the plants we see at this great Toronto horticultural site have been donated by the public, either as plants or seeds.

Searching online suggests that you are probably right in identifying this hibiscus as ‘Tylene’, since that’s the closest in appearance I have found.
