Love this!  So simple but yet so profound!!!

Thank you Robbie, that is sweet of you to say.   I am trying to do this and at the end of the day I reflect back to see if I can find one if I didnt see it before!

Do you still have extra seeds you are giving away?  I saw that on facebook.  My planting zone is Zone 8.  If you still have some seeds and you think they might work for zone 8, I would love to have some!

Oh how TOTALLY FUN!  YES I would love those too Robbie.  Thank you so much!  I planted Cosmos this year and some of them are white and they are lovely.  I am really hoping they will come back.  My fatherinlaw always had them in his garden along his fence line.  i dont know if he collected them and replanted, or just let them drop there and they came back.  i am having such fun with my garden this year. 

All of my hibiscus have been beautiful this year!  The blooms are 6"-8" and both bushes were COVERED in blooms at their peak!!!  They put on quite a show for us!!!  I will mail the seeds out to you today.  Be sure to go on YouTube and look up the best way to sprout hibiscus seeds to get maximum success.......it makes a huge difference.  These seeds will be for next year and it is best to start them inside around January and plant them outside around April or May.  They are hardy to -20F.  If it gets colder than that where you live, just throw a blanket over where the plant roots are to protect the roots. They die back in the fall and you cut them off at ground level and they come back up in April or May usually so the roots are all you have to worry about.

There are tropical hibiscus (NOT cold hardy) and perennial hibiscus (or sometimes called "hardy" hibiscus).  The tropical usually has the darker green leaves.  The perennial hibiscus can have the lighter green leaves or sometimes red leaves.......not sure if the leaves can be the darker green also.  I haven't seen any that are dark green but not positive.   

If anyone else would like some seeds for next year, let me know what color and/or if you want some of both colors and give me a mailing address to mail them to.  or, if you prefer, I am on FB as Robbie Lamm.....you can send me an IM on there even if we are not FB friends.  If you are outside the US, I probably will not be able to send you seeds.   If you have ever traveled internationally you know how strict they are about plants and seeds crossing borders.  I will gladly mail them to anyone in the US though.  I posted the white with pink center in a post above and this one I call pink even though it is slightly variegated.  Seeds can be somewhat different when they come up from what I understand.  I am more of a "roses" person so have a lot more knowledge of growing roses than I do hibiscus.
