a simple red double

merkityAugust 6, 2014

this is my red double, finally recovered from winter and producing seed pods for me. This is also the one that produces seedlings with the funny tri-lobed leaves. *fingers-crossed* i should be harvesting a few pods from this guy in a few weeks and a bit sooner on my butterfly plant.

I am thinking that some of these seedlings are showing their other species roots...they have such neat leaves. i think this is the most extreme one.

That's pretty neat, I have crossed my trees and gotten similar leaves as you have shown, I also have some intermediate leaves with three fingers and lots of hairs!

I just can't wait to see what kind of flowers these start producing flowers.

unfortunately my red double has not produced more than 2 seed pods this year - it doesn't like something and the seed pods keep dying off. oh well, I got lots of pods off my butterfly instead this year.

Merkity,
I want to see your hybrid with the different leaves bloom.
That is really cool looking.
Please post a pic when it does.

lol, no kidding Merkity- my hybrids just reached 2 years old and I am very impatiently hoping it will be an early bloomer- but if its three years I am hoping it is worth the wait :-)

the pics to my weird leaf morphs are in the hybrid hibiscus (dwarfed) thread.
