Cross breeding, propogation
This is my first serious year of gardening. I've always kept houseplants, but this year I began growing everything I could find.
This coming year of 2012, I want to start learning hybridization, cross pollinating and grafting.
I've decided to start with hibiscus, simply because I already have 2 growing in my yard.
However.... I need help.
One hibiscus is known as confederate rose and rosemallow. The other one is a pink rose of Sharon.
Can these 2 plants cross breed at all? either by grafting or swapping pollens?
If I buy other hibiscus, which ones can I get that CAN cross breed?
Personally I don't like the flowers on these, I much prefer the huge flowers that other hibiscus have.
Basically long story short, how do I know what types of hibiscus can cross breed?
