Variation within a Kind

How much change can occur within a kind? Using the Hibiscus Kind as an example, there are changes to color, overall size, and even complexity of the petals (ornamentals). The major features that distinguish this kind do not change. The major features include a corolla of 5 petals fused at the base and an Adroecium composed of many stamen fused with the carpels of the Gynoecium.
