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.

Wooly Rose-Mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos subsp. lasiocarpos)
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

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.
