My new hibiscus

Brigham City, UT(Zone 5b)

I started these from seed, some this year and some last year. They are beautiful.

Nice varieties - beautiful colors! The last one looks like Lady Baltimore but I was thinking it didn't make seeds but I still have a lot to learn....

These are from seeds that I gathered from my hibiscus. I really don't know how I got that one. I love it. I used some for table decorations for a 50 year class reunion. The glass is 12" and the hibiscus filled them.

What an unusual way to display them - great idea! Thanks for sharing!

So what did you do to the seeds before you planted them? Sharon

Hi Sharon, I soaked my seeds overnight then put them in paper towels in baggies under lights. When I saw little sprouts I planted them in potting soil. I had about a 50% success rate. They seemed to take a while to really take hold.
I saw somewhere that some seeds takeup to months to germinate, I didn't wait that long. The last ones that I started are very large, I am in awe of the beauty of them. I have pure white, dark red, light red, pink swirls - both light and dark. I planted 29 new hibiscus in the new yard that I bought next door. I just got Yard of the Month for August. It is a brand new yard that I started this spring. I love it.

Some of the Sunflowers are over 10' tall. I just love them. I really don't know what I love most about the garden. So much color and so many different flowers. I just can't stop smiling.
