I'll keep an eye on it and let you know if I get some. It's still blooming. Will I have to wait for them to dry naturally, or can I pull them off and send the seed pods to you?

Summer Storm has my favorite vote; for some reason it hasn't been attacked by the larvae that completely hollow out the leaves of my other Hibiscus every year.

I got a cutting of 'Summer Storm.' It's beautiful. Some of these wont come true from seeds. The ones with dark leaves especially. You can order seeds of the Luna and Disco Belles. I just like the dark leaved varieties because they look good when not blooming. Summer Storm and Midnight Marvel were the two best out of all the ones I've seen for leaf color and blooms. I'm rooting cuttings of mine.

They root in water so easily. I was surprised.

The hardy's do root a whole lot easier than the tropicals, rosa-sinensis.

Do you take cuttings like you do on a lilac bush? I have so many of them, I don't really need more, but it would be fun to try. Has anyone ever tried splitting the root ball?

I think Cranberry Crush is my profile picture...

Thanks,

I just root them like Coleus. I cut a limb off and root in a glass of water near a light.

Not that I need anymore, but I'm going to try that! I'm sure somebody in the neighborhood will take them if they make it! I did read that wintersowing Hibiscus is not real reliable, but I may try that too.

I just stick the cuttings in dirt. Haven't tried the water method.
