Hibiscus "Mella Yella"

I love the amusing names nurseries give to hibiscus plants. This lovely shade of yellow is truly mellow, and it makes me feel mellow when I see its first blooms. This bushy shrub always has a special place in my backyard jungle.

That is a great picture...I am not familiar with the Mella Yella variety however I have a several in my yard...dark red lord baltimore but my favorite is a Rose Mallow I have had for years...it is probably 6 foot across and 7 foot tall when blooming.
