Where can I buy the plant Hibiscus syriacus 'Lenny'


By 147mojo

Recently our family suffered an infant death, his name was Lenny so obviously I am wanting to buy a plant which his mum can grow.
The only plant I can find associated with his name is
Hibiscus syriacus 'Lenny'
Upto now I haven't been able to source it locally or actually buy it on the internet.
Any help would be appreciated.

On plant Rose mallow 'Lenny' (Hibiscus syriacus 'Lenny')



I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have tried the RHS plantfinder, but I'm afraid it is not available through the Nurseries listed there. There was also a Dahlia called 'Lenny' but that also has been discontinued.

Why not try eBay? You can post a 'wanted' on there.

Otherwise, it is possible that a GOY member might have one of the Dahlias and could take a cutting for you. I do hope you find one of either as a memorial.

If no luck, why not consider another more general named plant..I'm sure there are 'In memory' names for example?

I am so very sorry for your loss, I hope you can find a suitable plant to commemorate Lenny's life.

A quick google would suggest that Wyevale garden centres have the hibiscus.

Also this nursery has them on the list, could be worth a call.

I don't know the answer, but have you tried "froogle" under google? Try typing in "Lenny plant" and see what comes up.

Sorry for the sad loss too. Hope you get successful.
