DISCRIPTION OF PARENTS AND/OR POTENTIAL RESULTS. In an effort to economize on the time consuming description of crosses and potential results, I will hence forth only provide additional information where it would seem beneficial. In this respect note that standard procedure is to list the pod parent first and the pollen parent last.  Pod parent size: medium; pollen parent size: very large.  My guess is that this cross has very good potential to produce something quite different  Surprises are to be expected.

GENERALLY:   Tropical Hibiscus are a melting pot of a number of species crossed with the original Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. As a consequence the gene pool is so mixed that even the seed from the same pod can produce plants with flowers that differ in many respects - from different colors, flower sizes, patterns, bush types, etc.. Even though the seedlings from a given seed pod can be quite variable, there is a trend to occasionally resemble the parents. Therefore, one of the best general guides is to remember that like begets like, so if you like doubles, select seed from a cross where at least one parent is a double – preferably both. If you prefer large flowers, select parents that are large or the converse [large often begets large but some progeny of small size will occur, while small parents less commonly produce large seedlings]. Many varieties have a tendency to pass on specific characteristics, e.g., white rims, eye zones, basic color spectrum, etc. Regarding the latter if one parent is in the blue or brown spectrum, it is quite probable that many of the offspring will be in the blue/gray/lavender/purple or brown spectrum. The best chance of getting what you are looking for is to see qualities in one or both of the parents that you desire. Surprises are to be expected which is part of the fun of growing tropical hibiscus from seed. 

Most all are suited to pot culture, but they will flourish when planted in the ground in suitable climates. The flowers that result from this seed are all likely to be beautiful by most any standard, and there is the potential for some to exceed the best of the best available in the world today. The growing of such seed amounts to high adventure in the plant realm, complete with the trials and tribulations, failures and success and the potential to extend the known limits of floral beauty.


should provide me an import permit from which I can provide a phytosanitary certificate, although people have informed me that for small amounts of seed sending via regular priority air mail is adequate.  As it is difficult for me to verify the regulations applicable to the US or other countries, it is your responsibility to confirm the applicable regulations. If you do bid and win, I will send the seed as you instruct, and if there is no specific mention of import requirements, for U.S. Citizens, it will be sent via ordinary priority air mail and for others via registered air mail. If your seed is confiscated for failure to inform me of the proper procedure for importation, you will not be reimbursed should your seed be confiscated. The cost of the phytosanitary certificate is $10.00 per shipment.  Therefore, if you elect this method, it is best to pay for each weeks wins, but have me hold and accumulate your seed, so that only one phytosanitary certificate applies to the accumulated shipment. For US citizens, information concerning one type of permit that does not required a phytosanitary certificate, can be found at the following link.
