Plant ID question

Asked October 29, 2018, 2:34 PM EDT

Have had this houseplant for more than 25 years. It has been reported numerous times as well as cut back hard. It is now displaying 2 different kinds of foliage and blooms!

It appears all stalks come off one football. Can you ID the plant name & explain how there can be 2 different growths on one plant?!

Thank you,

Good afternoon, Congratulations on keeping this plant for 25 years. It is s tropical hybiscus but I can't explain why it has the different foliage on the plant. Is this something that has just started or has it done this every year? Anyway, be happy that it is blooming and enjoy it. It is beautiful.
