An U.S. vendor hopelessly confuses Hibiscus cannabinus, Hibiscus furcellatus and Hibiscus radiatus and offers seeds at a horrendous price - however, as a matter of fact all of them are distinct species. We offer true-to-type seeds from yellow-flowering Hibiscus cannabinus and at a much lower price.

Additionally, some apparently plant unexperienced vendors offer seeds from Hibiscus trionum under the name of Hibiscus cannabinus 'Amethyst', which is a completely different species. Hibiscus trionum makes terminal, smoothly hairy seed capsules, whereas Hibiscus cannabinus has axillary, quite hard capsules covered with short and bristle hairs.
