Hi everybody!
Does this bloom remind you of any named red variety?

The blooms are 3-3.5" on average, the texture is very thick, and the petals have this interesting roll on the sides. The scent is herbal.
As they age, they develop some orange at the center, which was very hard for me to capture with the camera.
The only thing the seller knew about this plant when I bought it 2 years ago was that it was from Hawaii.

It rings a bell somewhere in the distance but I can't quite name it.

Thanks Linda! I am a big sucker for reds, too!

This is one of the reds that I have that is really red, a really deep true red when it first opens, that my camera has not been able to fully capture (maybe I need a new camera!).

Thanks for the suggestion, Hetty!
I looked up pictures of Wave Rage, and it seems to be more on the deep pink side, with petals a little more narrow than mine, so I don't think it is Wave Rage.
Maybe it is just an un-named variety... for now my hubby and I call it "the hawaiian red" when we talk about it!

Japanese Lantern? Although petals on yours are wider, I have seen some pics on internet with wider petals.

Thanks Plumania! I have Japanese Lantern, and don't think it is the same, because the flowers are smaller on the Japanese Lantern, also its petals are not as thick as this one, and don't have the peculiar curls along the edge of the petals. I've even thought about Pop's Red, as the red color and the flower size are pretty close, but the petals are not the same.
