|This lovely plant, traditionally associated with Hawaii, is usually grown as a houseplant on the mainland. Leaves are glossy and dark green, to
6 inches long, and are ovate, with a finely toothed edge. Large, delicate blooms with five petals reach up to 7 inches across. Those of 'The President' are lightly frilled, rich pinkish-red with darker red veins and interiors. Distinctive long, red stamens extend out from the center. Commonly grown outside year round in frost free areas. May be pruned to keep size in check.
