Annual Hibiscus

vera_eastern_wa(5a-5b)March 19, 2006

I'll be sowing these today and was wondering when do the annual Hibiscus normally bloom? How tall or bushy can I expect them to get? Tell me what you know about these please! I guess I should have been asking this when I made the trade lol! I was just so excited about something new...sheesh!

Are you referring to the H. manihot (yellow variety) or which?

I have no idea. I got it in trade marked Hibiscus; white w/purple center.

Sounds like Hibiscus trionum flower of an hour.
They get 2-3' tall.

Vera,

How large were the seeds? If they were smaller than perennial Hibiscus seeds, they are most likely H. trionum.

I would say that seed is about the same, maybe slighly larger than a seed bead.

Well I do beadwork and the seed beads I work with are very small 15's or standard size 11's :)
I'm posting a pic of the seeds here to see what you think:

This one is taken from about 8" over plate and the 2nd one about 4"....

Thanks,

Vera

Hard to tell, but yours look kidney (or heart) shaped (kind of)....if so, they are not H. trionum. :o)

Wonderful! They do look like tiny hearts :))
So now I'll have to find out what other Hibiscus have these same color of flowers. I did find the trader last night and have emailed her...am waiting for a response.

Thanks again!
