Free seeds - Hibiscus Trionum

Post by tocyvi on Wed Sep 11, 2013 4:17 pm

I will soon have plenty of seeds from a Hibiscus Trionum that popped up in the garden some years ago and has seeded ever since. It is a beautiful flower and will self-seed once it is established. If anyone wants any seed, please send me a pm with your address and I'll send some out to you. Link below shows the flower:

Hi Izzyedwards. The seeds will be fine to keep. Let me know when you're over and I'll send some on to you.

The following website has some sowing & growing instructions (but ignore the photo; these seeds are for a creamy-yellow variety and I think they're nicer):

Apologies to those who asked for seeds. I have a few but I'm waiting for some more flower heads to "seed" before I send them out. I will get round to it asap.

I will be posting the seeds out tomorrow. If you don't get them within a few days, or if you want more seeds, please let me know and I'll be happy to send some more out as they ripen.
Good luck, although I don't think you'll need it; they seem to germinate easily.

Hi Blakevine
I'm delighted you've been successful. They should self-seed without any bother.

All plants doing well and my neighbour was delighted when I gave her one; she also asked what to do with it in winter and I don't seem to have the answer. Do we bring them indoors or cover them to protect from frost, snow etc? Seems a bit early to ask but she doesn't live here all the while (ahem..) and I might be looking after it when she goes back to the Alps! K.

Hibiscus Trionum is an annual. When the flower dies, collect the seed heads when they're dry and sow them either straightaway or in spring. I am delighted that you and your neighbour have had such pleasure from such a small gift. Any other queries, please ask.
