Is it a given that if a Hibiscus seed is flat and has the 'fuzz' around it that it's from a tropical variety?

I should have posted a photo with my original post. These are what I have. I can't remember who sent them to me but the envelopes say pink, white and purple.

The shape is H. sabdariffa but the sabdarrifa doesn't have hair.

Probably yes.

I took a look at my Hibiscus syriacus seeds and they do look like your pic and your seedlings look a lot like H. syriacus.

Thanks for the help in the ID Jay. Now I know what I've got and can correctly label the pots and the seed packets.

Hello,

My name is Jose Marie O. Trangco, call me JM. I was so thrilled to come across your website/Facebook page and found your email/contact address and hoping you won't mind my way of reaching out. I am from the Tropical Country of the Philippines and I was so amazed of how beautiful Hibiscus are in your Country. I was wondering how were you able to produce those beautiful varieties and make them bloom so beautifully in a temperate country like yours.

There are local Hibiscus here and are very hardy. we locally call them "Gumamela" and people usually doesn't care much about them because it seems that they still grow year round and flower very prolific with neglect just about everywhere.

I am just wondering because I do adore the beauty of Hibiscus, love to garden and I love flowers too. The varieties and flowers are very heat resistant especially here that the mid afternoon sun is very intense and really hot, but yet they don't really care, the blooms are still beautiful, never fading and the colors are just getting even more intense, THEY REALLY LOVED THE SUN and flower ALL Year round, they are forever perennials here.

Average temperatures in the Philippines usually range between 21 °C (70 °F) and 32 °C (90 °F) with the average yearly temperature coming in at around 26.6 °C (79.9 °F).

I am asking a BIG favor whoever has a good heart and soul and great kindness to share with me some Hibiscus seed? The varieties and cultivars you have there are just amazing and never thought that they can be propagated by seeds? We do cuttings here, and it grows so very easy and fast.

I really cannot purchase online because it ask for a Credit Card and I don't have one and it will cost me much because it is in US dollars. I am wondering if seeds will likewise grow in here just like their native cousins here which are terribly very hardy.

I am more interested with what you have their in your country, the varieties and the colors are 1 of a kind, never have I seen one in here. The singles and the doubles are just awesome, I have read about Hybrid Hibiscus and I am so excited to have even just one.

I hope someone reading my long letter will be kind enough to share some mixed Hybrid Hibiscus Seeds via Mail that I can try in here in my Country, the Philippines.

Thank you very much in advance and more power!

Sincerely,

Mr. Jose Marie O. Trangco
