Malvaceae week 0905-9112011 UD 017 Hibiscus mutabilis that does not mutate, WHY ?:

Familiy:            Malvaceae
Subfamiliy:           Malvoideae
Tribe:                       Hibisceae
Genus:                        Hibiscus
species :                         Hibiscus mutabilis…  that does not mutate….
I am sending in a specimen of Hibiscus mutabilis ….
this particular plant was obtained by airlayering from a mother plant that is a truly ” mutabilis” plant… gets white flowers that turn pink and then red …  more cutting (second generation) from this non mutating mutabilis continues not to mutate….
Is this phenomenon of genetic expression changing?  how?  what is the reversal process?
The owner of this nursery and his son are well educated and internationally known , he is also the president of East Indian states nursery trade and growers  association, i met him at an all India conference where he gave a
lecture …I mean to say I believe him…

Is there anybody working on genetic mutations in Malvaceae or Hibiscus in particular ….?  would they like samples, what kind and how preserve them … ? or has this already known?  Would be eager to know…..

Malvaceae week: Dombeya from Andaman_RKC_01_090911:  Loc.: Wandoor, Andaman Island (cultivated)

Date: December, 2009


I am not familiar with Dombeya. But this looks like Hibsicus mutabilis to me. Correct me if I am wrong.


… me too thinking of Hibsicus mutabilis, though the size of flower looks smaller ..


Yes may be Hibiscus matabilis. Flowers are solitary not in cymes, also epicalyx can be seen in fruit.

Hibiscus mutabilis L ?. from Hooghly 2/11/12 sk1:

I go to key no. 22 of Hibiscus in FoC and i read – “Epicalyx lobes linear or linear-lanceolate, 1.5-5 mm wide” ………. 25
I move to key 25 and read – “Epicalyx lobes 8, 8-16 × 1.5-2 mm; pedicel 4-13 cm” …. 26
I stop here, because there is a red signal ahead….. !!!
  1. leaf blade broadly ovate to round-ovate or cordate, 5-7-lobed,…… Epicalyx lobes 8, filiform = FoC
  2. Leaves …. obscurely-distinctly 3-7 lobed; epicalyx segments 8-12, free, = FoP
species : UNKNOWN
H & H : ornamental shrub in a pvt. compound; 6 feet high; flowers are white in morning and pink in afternoon
Date : 30th and 31st October, 2012

Place : Hooghly


Yes …, you are right.

It grows commonly in Delhi, and is very distinctive, especially because habit resembles Dombeya, and one may confuse two without flowers. Plus I also checked key of FOC. You were on dot.


called Sthala-padma in Bangla


Yes, …, STHALPADMA, but to me the flower doesn’t look like PADMA!



Cotton Rose is a large shrub or small multistemmed tree that grows to 15 ft high with about a 10 ft spread. Dropping its leaves in winter the shrub’s slender stems seem to disappear among neighboring plants until midsummer, when it leafs out into a big bushy mass. 
The large leaves are 5 – 7 in, bright green, hairy on the undersides and deeply lobed. They impart a coarse texture that gives the plant a distinctive eye-catching appeal. 
Cotton rose is very imposing when in full bloom starting in late summer and on into fall. 
The large double or single-flowered blooms that are 3-5 in acroos, open pure white and change color over a three-day period until they are deep pink and then as they die assume a dark “blue-pink” hue. The most notable characteristic of this flowering shrub is that flowers of three distinct colors appear on the bush simultaneously as the blooms color cycle independent of one another. In fact, the species name mutabilis means, changeable. 
After flowering, a round, hairy capsule forms which dries and releases fuzzy seeds, a trait that inspired one of the plants common names, cotton rose as the buds resemble the boll of that famous member of the hibiscus family.

Hibiscus mutabilis L. – cotton rosemallow, garden escape, found run wild in the out skirts of Bangalore


Yes Sir, a popular ornamental small tree here in Pantnagar (Uttarakhand). Flowers later faded to white or pink.

Hibiscus mutabilis  L.

yes. wonderful to see the two colors


Beautiful photos. This is seen in garden in Mysore, Bangalore and many other places in South Karnataka.


Yes sir ! Beautifully captured both colors !!!


Hibiscus mutabilis L. : 7 posts by 2 authors. 5 images- 3 to 7 mb each.
Location: Kathmandu Valley
Date:  October 2020 
Elevation: 1500m.
Habitat  : Wild

ID is correct. A common garden plant in Bangalore



Hooghly : 17-04-2021 : Hibiscus mutabilis: 2 images.
These are comparative pictures of two types of Hibiscus growing at my home, one (the left hand side) changes colour while the other (the right hand side) remains white throughout the day.

Both the two plants are shrubby, around 7 to 8 feet tall.

The question is – can the second plant be considered as a H. mutabilis species?


I think yes. Being cultivated, I think such variations maybe possible as seen at Hibiscus mutabilis


It’s a strange world, Sir, where ‘common crow’ is a butterfly, and custard apple is neither custard nor an apple !!!

Yes, Sir, albino tiger is still a tiger!
