|I saw on Etsy seeds for hibiscus that were touted as hardy. Coming from Florida I thought they might actually be tropical hibiscus. There are some fantastic colored blossoms that I've never see in real or catalogs. They look like the tender tropicals to me.
I would love to try my hand at growing one of these even if they are not hardy.
Does anyone know anything about growing hibiscus from seed?

|Just remember hybrids will not come true from seed. You might get very nice ones but will differ from the parent plants. I think Hibiscus seeds need to be soaked and nicked.|

|Hardy hibiscus are different from tropical. If you are into hibiscus check on ebay. There are many sellers on there that sell seedlings from hybrid tropical hibiscus. Seedlings of hybrids are rooted cuttings. Some do sell tropical seeds, but you wont have any idea what the flower will look like until it grows.|
