There's not that many ROS so maybe someone will recognize these.
Lavender pink with an eye.

White with red eye, possibly Red Heart or Helene. They look exactly the same... Sad

Blue Satin. I know for sure, but there are two plants in the database with the name Blue Satin...
One has a patent, and one doesn't, I think... How do I know which one I have???
Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus Blue SatinĀ®)

Keith,
I see you have some ROS seedlings, how did you start the seeds?
Did you cross them, or did you just let the bees do it?
I crossed a couple and will have some seeds to sprout.

The bees did. I tried cross pollinating because I have rare cultivars, but the pollen grows on the female part and the whole thing got ripped, how do you safely remove the pollen?

I'm not sure, I just picked a whole flower and rubbed all the pollen on the tip.
There's not much info online, so I just guessed!

There's also No info about starting ROS seeds, I see you got yours to sprout.
Do you mind sharing your method?

They need cold stratification, the cold winter here does it for me ;)

I looks at your ROS pictures, where did you get Danica ROS?
It's very different and beautiful!
