HAVE: Seeds of Hibiscus dasycalyx

brenda_near_eno(Z7a)December 4, 2005

30 of these were given to me and I'd like to share half of this rare (according to Plant Delights) Texas native with someone else who grows natives. Also if anyone knows anything about H.dasycalyx germination and cultivation, I'd be truly grateful for any advice.

Brenda, if you haven't had any takers I would love to try and wintersow a few. I could keep one and bring the rest for you to swap. But I also noticed someone just posted a want for this seed either on the seed exchange or wintersowing exchange. PLMK. I'll see you at the seed swap. Shannon

I have one of these and have grown a couple from seed. Mine are in moist but not wet rich soil, which is where any hibiscus will do well; it's not as large as the one in the NC Botanical Garden but it's about 4 feet tall. I don't know if they can live happily in standing water like H. coccineus and moscheutos or not. Germination of the seed was also like other hibsicus; I don't usually bother to nick or soak the seed although this can speed up germination; I just sow outside in pots in early and let the heat and rain soften and swell the seeds.
