Hibiscus (detail) – these are in fact blooms at least 5″ across (in old money), serene satellite discs with frosted icing, blushed pink and with beaujolais wine centres and a scaffolding of creamy white stigma and stamens. I don’t  know the cultivar but am told it is hardy (root hardy maybe?). I might have the willpower to resist a purchase for a day or two –
