I've collected seed from our 40 year old Rose of Sharon shrubs, as well as natural color hybrids that grew wild from seed. All seed is mixed so bloom color and shape are a surprise. (These require cold stratification for seed to germinate)

Send me a tree mail with your name and address if your interested.

Do you have photos of the blooms? I don't think Rose of Sharon need to be stratified.

No photos it's winter they are all twigs now. I've planted seeds without stratifying and they never sprout, but after the freezing winter come spring hundreds of seedlings emerge.

Keith, do you know if these are likely to be blue, or are they more likely to be white or pink? Or do your varieties completely run the gamut? (I'm about to go research how long it takes for blooms...I'm curious if blooms appear on first-year plants or if they need to be more mature to bloom. )

I've collected seeds from all 3 of those colors, plus offspring from those that cross pollinated. Pink is most likely followed by white/white mix and blue least likely. Blooms can appear in first year plants but usually it takes two years.

Thank you for the answer, Keith! It sounds like you have a wonderful mix. I think I'll let others make dibs on the seeds that want them because I'm primarily looking for blues and whites (I try not to do much pink in my yard).

I have over 300 seeds, the worst is you grow them and don't get the color you want and give the plants away, but it's very possible you can get pure white. If you want to try let me know.
