Deep Chakraborty, Jetti Swamy and Devendra Singh

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis L. is a well-known traditional, ornamental, and aesthetic plant in India and China due to its wide range of coloured cultivars, a long history of cultivation and worship. The flowers of hibiscus are locally called Joba / Gudhal, and which are offered to Goddess Kali/Durga and Lord Vinayaka in West Bengal, India.

The new cultivar named as ‘Janaki Ammal’ after a famous Indian Botanist E. K. Janaki Ammal. Detailed selection, hybridisation and characterisation of the new cultivar with photographs is provided to facilitate identification.
