I have had these hibiscus' for about 4-5 years I have split the roots and shared many times, they get up to eight feet tall.(I have to support and stake them) What is the name of this hibiscus? Many people stop and ask me about them, I have probably 7 plants in my yard. This last year it got pods with seeds and I have successfully germinated them - many more seeds available they seem to be very tempermental.. any suggestions or experience in care I would like to share or sell them they are beautiful the blooms must be 7 -8 inches across. I have more pics.

Tig, I'd take your question to the Plant ID forum, you might have better luck there. Good luck!

It is a hardy hibiscus. I would love about 20 seeds. I can give you seeds from white hardy I have had for over 15 years.
