I am new here to this forum, and perhaps am overstepping my bounds by asking...but I am wondering if there comes a time during Fall pruning and bringing in of the plants if members here share cuttings for postage or trade them? I want to buy everything I see, but my pocketbook is small and I would love a few cuttings come Fall even if I have to pay a small fee for them I'd be glad too...
Im in your boat. Very willing to pay for cuttings. I don't know what I will be able to contribute with my small plants. Maybe some of my bigger ones, but would like to keep in touch with you and see what we can trade when the time comes! Who knows, mine might take off in a huge growth spurt.
Thanks Guam, I didn't figure it would hurt to at least ask. Since Hardy Hibs are more my current cup of tea, I know little about the pruning habits of the Tropicals. I was thinking if it was something everyone normally did perhaps they traded...
Hi, glad I dropped in. I have 3 different hardy perennial Hibiscus that I started from mixed seeds purchased from George W. Park. One is blooming, the other will if roaming antelopes from the mountain leaves it alone. It has buds I am protecting. The 3rd is from seedling of last year. No buds yet.
I only know the color of one. I think it is Southern Belle. Height is 2 ft.
If someone would explain when to take cuttings, I would love to trade for a tropical Hibiscus.
Here is H. 'Southern Bell' with blooms that reach 8" across
