Have blooms and want to know how I gather seeds? I have green/white/pink leaf'd hibiscus and another one that is from Hawaii more green, pink, a little white. Both are bloming and would like to start from seed. I have started from cuttings. H-e-l-p???? I also want double yellows, new double pink (see Logee's catalog). THANKS

RE: WANTED: H-E=L-P Where are hibiscus seeds

I'm 99% sure that the hibiscus you have don't self-pollinate. You'll have to hand pollinate.
Here's a great link on how to do it.
Good luck!
BTW - I'm very jealous of you - I'd love some of those hibiscus, but I have no more room!
