It might not seem like it with temperatures in the 90's here, but summer is officially over. Fall is here and time to start a new thread. New plant, new blooms, are you starting seeds or taking cuttings? Let's here what's going on with your Hibiscus this fall.

Rose have you grown the hearty hibs from seeds. I have tried them before and they do not seem to comeback for me after winter. I did get a few seeds from the ones I picked up at Lowes on the discount cart for 3.00 and I am going to try to grow some from seeds.

Anyone ever winter sow the hardy HIbiscus seeds?

Cinta - I just received some seeds and am planning to try the winter sowing. I've never winter sowed anything in my life so we'll see how it goes. I also received some seedlings and that's new for me too. Hopefully I'll get something out of either the seeds or the seedlings.

Since I have enough seeds I am going to try winter sowing some and direct planting some in the Spring and see what happens.

We have to meet back next year and report what worked. I did a search and I did not find anything in the WS Forum so maybe our results can help others.

Here are my tropical blooms so far. All 3 from Hiddenvalleyhibiscus.com

First one Pinot noir, second is California beauty, and third one is golden gate.

Stills waiting for my hybrids to flower... it's been a long journey, started them from seeds last year this time. Got probably 20.

Nice Jay, my Hibiscus sabdariffa grown from your seeds has buds. I don't imagine it would last the winter if I took it out of the pots would it?

No they won't survive freezing temps.

Sorry, I'm s still learning the new layout here! The hibiscus discussion was waaaay down at the bottom and I didn't scroll that far!

I had some growing from seeds that I winter sowed one year, but I forgot to water them in the heat of the summer and they died. They were looking really good up until then. I have several self sowed seedlings out there this year, so I'll see if they make it through the winter.

I now own the 'Shirley Temple' hibiscus.

The lunar pink swirl seedlings are still small - had to spray them for white flies.

One of my three Hibiscus sabdariffa (Roselle) finally bloomed. I'd had two other blooms on another plant but they never fully opened.

Here's a photo (taken a couple of days ago) of a hibiscus I have growing outside my study window in the south of France. We're lucky there because we get no frost, which gives me possibilities of growing tender plants that would not survive in our garden in England.



I hope next year to add other varieties... suggestions welcome!

That's very pretty, Lovey dubby and yes, I have zone envy. Rolling my eyes. I just brought my tropicals into my garage today to get them acclimated to growing inside over the winter. That would not be necessary if I lived in a warmer zone. Sighing!
