double confederate rose

I got this seed in a round robin last winter. Got good germination, but they are not roses. Some kind of shrub, hibiscus maybe? Leaves are light green, heart shaped with a serated edge. Sound familiar to anyone?

clc70, confederate rose is hibiscus family. It does grow like a tree/shrub. Very pretty when blooming. Hope this helps. you can google it and get more info on it.

RE: double confederate rose

It's Hibiscus mutabilis. Common names alone on seed packets can be very confusing, but your new shrub should be hardy in your zone and very pretty.

RE: double confederate rose

Thanks all. I got 16 plants germinated.
