Noticed this variation ... the first pic has the extra petals and stamens

Had forgotten to tag the stem of the double flower but had another bloom.... Also noticed one of my Lord Baltimore's only had four petals and seemed to have pollen??? (included a pic of the normal bloom) Also thankful that my Ohio White Star seems very vigorous this year - in fact, it seems like a real "bumper" year for the hibi's - hard winters must not bother them and with the frequent rains early on and lots of sun - well, the result has been outstanding.... hope everyone else has had a good summer too!

Is it a conjoined bud?

I've got 3 buds on one single hibiscus stem I'm sure that's an oddity too!

Here is photo of my conjoined buds, see the really thick stem?

Hi Keith, just reading over the posts from last year. Did you get any seeds from your solid white hibiscus? I sure would like to send you postage if you have any seeds to share. Your photos are great. Keep me in mind. Alda
