Hi I started some 'Hardy hybiscus' from traded seeds and I have a question...All I know is it is 'pink with mauve' there a way to tell from the leaves (once the true leaves come) if this is a mallow form of hardy hybiscus or the larger tree form 'syracus??spell"...

If you go to the Seed Site link. There are photos of the seeds. The syriacus seeds look way different than the other kind as you will see. And the leaves are different on the plants too.

Here is a link that might be useful: The Seed Site page w/Hibiscus

RE: Hybiscus...mallow or tree

Thank you for your response...most of my seeds had the feathery edges except for one package that were the hard brown type so therefore all were tree form except the little brown roundish ones...great!...Most have germinated but all the leaves look the same thus far.
Thanks again...I think I have it figured out now.
