Hibiscus arnottianus A. Gray ssp. immaculatus

jardinerowaJuly 30, 2006

Hey all,

Does anyone know how I can get a hold of Hibiscus arnottianus A. Gray ssp. immaculatus seeds/seedlings to grow. I'm in Western WA and with a little greenhouse I would like to try to grow these as it is an endangered species. Thanks.

Hello Jardinerowa, They have been known to be available in Australia via some people who have contacts in the Hawaiian Botanical Gardens. I will see if they still have some seed, otherwise contact the Bot gardens and see what they can do. This plant is growing in Australia, so what about getting some wood from it and growing it on?
Try asking this question on the International Hibiscus Society website and others may be able to help as well.
Regards, Brian Kerr.

Brian,

Thanks for the message and the tips. I will try to contact the Hawaiian Botanical Gardens. I've seen the Hibiscus arnottianus for sale somewhere online but it doesn't say it's ssp. immaculatus.

I have a 20 year old hibiscus arnottianus plant that thrives in my yard. I would be open to selling cuttings if interested.
