I recieved shat was labeled as "White Cotton Hibiscus" in a trade. The seed is surrounded by cotton that looks like the stuff you take out of your aspirin bottles. No more information available and was wondering if anyone has anything to contribute about what I have. Thanks in advance for your input. D/s

It might be a Confederate Rose (Hibiscus mutabilis) 'White Cotton'.
Although, one of Hibiscus tiliaceus common names is Cotton Tree. http://www.hibiscus.org/species/htiliaceus.php
There is a website that has pictures of seeds, but I can't remember what it is. Grr!!
Hopefully this helped.
