The more red, the better. Nicely done. Happy Ruby Tuesday 2. Reply Jamal K. Sutton July 8, 2013, 9:59 pm The Rose Queen Hibiscus is an old cultivar that has recently been rediscovered. As with many hibiscus, it’s known by lots of alternative names; Red Hot, Fire and Ice, Checkered Hibiscus, Cooper’s Variegated are a few. However, it’s original registered name is Rose Queen. The Rose Queen Hibiscus makes a show stopping mass planting, although care must be taken to surround it with other plants that compliment and do not compete, as these are so bright colored that they really do steal the show.
