Hibiscus hybridizers?

Mc Lean, VA

Hi there,

Quick question: I'm trying to find one of the hibiscus that my grandparents, Yasha and Daniel Brandt, grafted, to grow myself. I was looking over their registrations and really liked Nightfire:
http://www.internationalhibiscussociety.org/SEArchive/index1.php?Search_box=Nightfire

But on the Dave's Garden database it says the hybridizer is Goulding:

I'm new to the databases, so I could be totally confused, but as beautiful as it is I'd like to find Nightfire only if it's my grandparents', for sentimental reasons.

Is Nightfire by the Brandts, or Goulding?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Pyxis,

"I'm trying to find one of the hibiscus that my grandparents, Yasha and Daniel Brandt, grafted, to grow myself. I was looking over their registrations and really liked Nightfire:"

I am not sure I understand your question. If you just want to acquire and grow it, you don't really need to know the original hybridizer, but just a commercial source that will sell you one (or more). You can find many sources of Night Fire on the Internet. These are just a few.

I don't pretend to know who would be a good source. You also might be interested in:

@Pyxis, Hi, your grandparents are the registered hybridizers of Nightfire; I checked the Hibiscus International Society Database (as you have). I think the link that states Goulding as the hybridizer here on Dave's is not correct, so it should be changed. Goulding has 463 registered cultivars and none of them are named Nightfire.
