An idea I had. Listing all the different hibiscus you are growing. Maybe we can share some cuttings, get plants identified, etc.

RoS = Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus Syriacus)
HM= Hardy water lovers (Hibiscus Mosheutos)
RS = Tropical Cultivars (Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis)
Other = Varieties not classified above, (i.e. Schizopetalus)
Unk = Don't know what you got, lets help. You could say RoS Unk and have an unknown variety of RoS.
BL = Bucket List (What do you want? limit 5)
@ I'll start:
RoS-
Blue Bird
Blue Satin
1 Unk (less than a 12" tall)

HM-
Lord Baltimore
Plum Crazy
Midnight Marvel
Cranberry Crush
Crown Jewels
Robert Fleming
2 Unk (less than 12"tall)

RS-
Brilliant
Sunny Wind
Tangerine Mist
Erin Rachael
Mandarin Wind
Sea Spray
Cosmic Dancer (Dupont)
Red Riding Hood
Fifth Dimension
Gabriel
Voodoo Magic

BL-
Red Dragon
Thunder Egg

Merkity,
We both have plants we want. I suspect we could get each other some cuttings this spring if you are hopefully in North America. I know Black Dragon is a finicky plant like Cosmic Dancer, but its worth the risk of shipping. I can start a Fifth D cutting and hopefully have a small plant ready for you next year.

RE: Plant List *sticky*

Gutzmek, I can definitely try to get some cuttings going from the larger plants, anything not labeled graftling. the graftlings I just got from fancy hibiscus, and are super tiny yet. I have no idea how it will take them to get big enough to get cuttings from. I am practicing getting some cuttings to root over the winter - hopefully it goes well. I am in california.

Merkity,
I have family in the SF area of Cali (Mom's White Wings). But I am curious about your experiences with Fancy Hibiscus. HVH sent excellent plants this year, and I would love to order from FH next spring also.

Ed,
nice - i am not far from SF, little south, work in SF. I ordered from Fancy hibiscus the black dragon and the hot ticket. I think i mentioned somewhere - Wynn mentioned the plants were small when i ordered, but the supply of black dragon seems to be a bit limited right now and he warned me that was the case. He shipped them pretty quick - came in just fine, the box was in good condition, plants were still wet. My only quibble is that the leaves were somewhat yellow when i got the plants and in the next week definitely turned chlorotic. i was a bit worried, but I quickly added some epsom and chelated iron - they have been improving rapidly. I have only had them about a month - and as long as they keep improving i will be happy. no idea how long until a i get to see a bloom. I intend to order from HVH as well - haven't gotten the chance yet - something about xmas coming up and I'm not allowed to buy anymore potential gift items. the two suppliers definitely have different stock...

No such thing as a pitiful or small list Olddog. We are all fans of the same hobby (addiction). And I'm sure we all get the same endorphin rush when we see even the most basic hibiscus either at a store or in a neighbors yard. You know its bad, when you spend part of your vacation in a different state checking nurseries for deals. Isn't that right Darren?

RE: Plant List *sticky*

or you are walking around town seeing these nice hibiscus bushes and wondering how upset people would be if you just took a quick clipping. I am guessing Disney wouldn't be too thrilled about it....

RE: Plant List *sticky*

Ed, my group therapy sessions start, my name is darren and I'm a plantaholic. I buy new plants before the ones I have at home have gone in the ground. Yeah, vacation sortes will be next.

Olddog, I looked up your red shield and I believe it is the same as my red maple which is named, Mahogany Splendor. Too funny but I have heard both names used.

Merkity, I have a couple of homes I've "marked" to return to. Will try to catch the owners for permission as they have unusual plants.

RE: Plant List *sticky*

Darren: I know just what you are saying. I have heard it called Red Spirit as well as Red Maple. It just goes to prove my point. There is a endless row of names for the same plant. I guess unless you are into the real Scientific names for all these critters you will just have to take them for what they are worth. I am too old to start digging into the real names and I am too old to really care what people call them. It is fun though to see what pops up with all these plants.


 o
RE: Plant List *sticky*

Olddog, agreed. I'm too old to learn another language, learning scientific names is too much work!

So those cuttings i started way back when are finally taking off this year. they were super small cuttings. One was likely only about 3-5 inches to start. it is now only about 6 inches tall but has full size leaves. it looks pretty silly being so short. soon as i can get my pics downloaded i will post them. I have a second one that was no more than an inch long cutting and its also now about 3-4 in tall and dong very well now.

RE: Plant List *sticky*

was browsing home depot today - ran across a rum runner which i didn't get at first. i did take home a little one called sunny wind and then decided to go back and get rum runner as well since i don't see it that often. I have noticed that the big box stores seem to put out a few varieties for the season and then don't have them again for a bit. Also grabbed one called snowfire - since i didn't have any of that type in my collection.
