Here's the blue satin color of hibiscus.
I can't find a closeup of the mallow marvel hibiscus though, but that variety does not contain blue like you said....

I'm thinking the botanical name includes the word "hibiscus" ....It's probably in the Mallow family....I do not believe it to be one of the marsh varieties....The two common names that I know do not include the word hibiscus, mallow, marvel or marsh....

How about, Rose of Sharon, or Aphrodite?

Or Aphrodite Rose of Sharon?

Edit:

Here's a pic of this guess.

Well that was a toughy.
What are the blue ones called?

I'll be back with a really easy one, for lack of better planning.....
I will want to know what it is and where I got it!

OK. What it is isn't too tough, but where did I get it?
That shouldn't be too tough either, using a little reasoning.....
