My Perennial Hibiscus.

In the spring of 2012 I started seeds from a hibiscus that I got seeds from in a local park in 2011.Here is my first bloom.

    Wow - you must be really proud.

    I have four hibiscus,grown from bareroot stems - this is their third year and not a flower in sight - I am envious!

    The Stone Age didn’t end because they ran out of stones ......

    Well done. You must be proud. Is this flower the same colour as the parent plant?

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Figetbones the seed parent was bright red.

    Did you only get one plant from the seed.? There may be other variations to come. that is the beauty of growing from seed. waiting for a surprise, just like santa claus has been ( Can't mention the C word yet)

    That's a lovely deep rich colour

  • I have 8 plants but none of the others have buds and with a chance of frost in September I will have to wait until next year.I used to hybridize iris 40-50 years ago and even won ribbons in local iris shows for my seedlings.

    I keep forgetting you're in Canada. Frost in September  Brrrrr.
