I have the hardy hibiscus 'Kopper King' - it has never set seed. Can anyone tell me if they have ever had theirs produce seed? Thanks!

Mine doesn't and it's because (I'm pretty sure) that Kopper Kings are hybrids.

Mine do. You may have to hand pollinate them yourself.

Mine have set seed but the seed does not come true to type. This is because it is a hybrid.The seed will grow and you might get somthing new and great but you proubly wont get a true Kopper King.
