Odd name, I know...
I couldn't find anywhere on the Internet that has it.

I got a hybrid with fuzzy hairs all over, including stem actually.


Anyone have any species that has it?

I'm thinking you have Hibiscus moscheutos subsp. lasiocarpos.

Hibiscus splendens has fuzzy leaves and stem and small prickles on the stem.

@Horntoad - Jay do you know of any tropical hibiscus with those characteristics? I certainly don't.

Brenden, post a picture of the leaves if you can and flower. That would be very helpful.

Tropical is an ambiguous term. When people say they have a tropical Hibiscus they are usually referring to Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, but it could mean any Hibiscus that grows in the tropical region. I know of no H. rosa-sinensis that are fuzzy hairy. I'm wondering what @bhart90 meant by the term tropical and how he determined that. Was there any kind of label?

Doesn't do it justice, poopy camera from tablet..

Mind you, I say it's tropical because I only did crosses with them. And none ever ever ever had this, so why now?



Also, the leaf structure, is of no descendant of my crosses. Not even close... not even close....
p.s.

none of my 16 have flowered.

The thread "Hybrid progress with pictures!" in Hibiscus forum

That is a post from me months ago. Regarding same plants.


Also, those links are the parent plants. I say tropical as in. No way they would survive a winter, there.
