 o
Hibiscus Blue Satin hardiness, seeds, etc

Hi,

I'd love to hear from anyone who is growing Hibiscus Blue Satin in a similiar zone to mine (USDA 4). Is it really hardy? Is it as exciting as they say? I remember when I used to grow Blue Bird in a warmer zone I had lots of seeds, and used to give away seedlings. Is anyone willing to trade some seeds from this?

I don't have the seeds for this particular variety. Although this is a beautiful specimen! It is hardy from zones 6-11. You could grow it as an annual in your area, just collect the seeds off of it in the fall and save them for planting in the spring.

This variety, as well as all ROS, is hardy in zone 5 too, don't know about zone 4, but maybe with protection. It is absolutely beautiful and is loaded with blooms every year.
