RE: rose hybridizing by pollen

I'm not sure what you are referring to. To the best of my knowledge, rose stamens don't "pop". However, there are things you can do if you emasculate roses to save the stamens for future use.

Hibiscus and roses do not breed. The former belongs to the mallow family and the latter to the rose family (Malvaceae and Rosaceae respectively)
