Hibiscus (Tropical Hibiscus) & Pavonia

« Previous  1 2 Next »
Hibiscus and Pavonia are mostly perennial evergreen to rarely deciduous shrubs, few tropical species are growing as annuals. All require a well drained substrate in full sun and plenty of water in summer. Tropical species should be kept drier in a sunny spot in winter at some 15°C to 20°C.
Sow flat at a minimum of some 20°C in any rocky or sandy soil, keep pots always in full sun.
10 seeds per package, if not stated differently.

Note on seed availability: All species in section Lilibiscus (e. g. Hibiscus arnottianus, Hibiscus boryanus, Hibiscus fragilis, Hibiscus kokio, etc.) as well as some other woody members (e g. Hibiscus insularis and Hibiscus scottii) are much sought after by collectors and are sometimes very rare in cultivation. Seed set in most of these species is very irregular and unpredictable. Despite a continued flowering period from spring through early winter, our cultivated plants usually fruit around early summer (May and June) and then again in early autumn (September and October) only. Whereas in full summer heat all developing seed capsules are usually aborted. Thus you have the best chance to get a hold on one of these rare species by occasionally checking our webshop for new arrivals in early summer and early autumn.

You find more Hibiscus species in this category: Hibiscus (Hardy Mallow) and Hibiscus (Swamp Mallow).

A note on Hibiscus seeds being offered on several selling platforms:
On severall well-known U.S. American, European and Chinese selling platforms you will find thousands and thousands hibiscus seeds on offer. And before you throw away your money, keep in mind the following. There does not exist any true blue, nor any vivid emerald green or any rainbow colored hibiscus. These are all photoshopped images and without any exception these offers are scams. Also, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cultivars will never come 100% true from seeds. If you are lucky enough, you will receive at least some hibiscus seeds (and not some other plant species you didnt' want). However, the color in your plants will never be the one shown on the photo. In the best case your plants will be close, but they will never be identical - genetically this is simply impossible. Then never ever buy anything from any seller who may also offer: blue tomatoes, blue or violet strawberries, blue, pure black or rainbow colored roses, blue or rainbow colored chrysanthemums, rainbow colored grapes, true blue orchids, blue cucumbers, blue sunflowers, blue pumpkins, etc. All these are fakes and you will be scammed. Last but not least, it should ring your alarm bells, if a particular seller uses "borrowed" photos from the web without giving any credit to the image copyright owner. In most cases a simply Google image search will reveal the real source for a particular photo. Serious sellers will always use photos taken from their own plants or at least they will give credit if they use a photo from a different source.

Hibiscus aff. fragilis "orange" (Orange Mauritius Mandrinette Hibiscus)

Hibiscus aff. fragilis "orange" (Orange Mauritius Mandrinette Hibiscus)

70 (110)cm, Orange Mauritius Mandrinette Hibiscus is an extremly rare orange flowering form from the slightly more common dark reddish pink Mauritius hibiscus. It is known from a single population only and it will probably be separated in the closer future from the nominal pink form as a subspecies due to several differences. This orange flowering form has a more erect habit and bears small leathery, finely pubescent, dark green leaves and ornamental, and for size of the plant rather large rich orange flowers. Easily grown in any rich, well drained substrate in full sun throughout the year and reduced watering in winter at a minimum of 20°C. Seeds from all Hibiscus species in section Lilibiscus (e.g Hibiscus arnottianus, Hibiscus cooperi, Hibiscus fragilis, Hibiscus genevii, Hibiscus mabberleyi, etc.) germinate unevenly over a period of several months. Keep pots in a warm spot and the soil slightly moist until germination will occur. We expect to offer seeds from this form in late 2024 for the very first time ever. VII-III.

Hibiscus arnottianus (Arnott's Hibiscus)

Hibiscus arnottianus (Arnott's Hibiscus)

200 (500)cm, Arnott's Hibiscus (Kokiʻo Kea or Koki'o Keokeo in Hawaiian language) is an evergreen tall shrub native of the Koʻolau mountains on Oʻahu island, Hawaii, USA. Hibiscus arnottianus is among the also Hawaiian endemic Hibiscus hannerae, Hibiscus immaculatus, Hibiscus punaluuensis and Hibiscus waimeae the only slightly violet or rose fragrant Hibiscus species in its genus. It has dark green, usually slightly glossy, glabrous leaves and quite large, pure white flowers with narrow petals and a long protruding reddish pistil. For any rich, well drained substrate in a partially shaded (summer) to sunny (winter) spot at a minimum of some 15°C. All plants offered as Hibiscus arnottianus with slightly rose or yellowish flowers are inevitably hybrids with Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cultivars. The same applies to all white flowering plants with a reddish center - plants from true Hibiscus arnottianus always have a white center. Our plants are unhybridized, true-to-type and self-fertile with pure white flowers and a white center. Hibiscus arnottianus and the very closely related Hibiscus immaculatus have the narrowest petals of all Hawaiian endemic white flowering Hibiscus species. Any plant with significantly broader petals than the one shown in the photo from one of our mother plants is a hybrid or a wrongly identified different species. Even several Hawaiian based nurseries erroneously sell obviously hybridized plants with broad petals as pure Hibiscus arnottianus. The so called Hibiscus arnottianus 'Wilders White' cultivar with broad petals is actually not a cultivar from the true species, but a hybrid with Hibiscus punaluuensis and thus it should be only called Hibiscus 'Wilders White'. And to make confusion complete, some Hibiscus rosa-sinensis hybrids with a red inner eye are being erroneously offered as 'Wilders White', whereas the real 'Wilder White' is entirely white, without any inner red eye. Be it as it is, from us you will get the true unhybridized species. VIII-XII.

Hibiscus cameronii (Cameron's Hibiscus)

Hibiscus cameronii (Cameron's Hibiscus)

100 (150)cm, Cameron's Hibiscus is an evergreen species from Madagascar, and extremely rare in cultivation. Hibiscus cameronii has soft woody branches with lobed leaves and showy, rather large light pink and white flowers with an inner wine red halo. In literature there is some confusion on this species as it is mentioned to be a parent of modern day Hibiscus x rosa-sinensis hybrids. Hibiscus cameronii belongs to section Furcaria whereas all Hibiscus x rosa-sinensis to section Lilibiscus, and these two sections do not hybridize at all with each other. The name "cameronii" (sometimes also spelled "cameroni") was misapplied to some early Hibisus liliflorus hybrid and does not refer to the true Hibiscus cameronii. For any rich, well drained substrate in full sun throughout the year and careful watering in winter at a minimum of 20°C. Germination in this species occurs unevenly over several weeks to months. Seeds are extremely scarce and you may not be able to locate them anywhere else but from us. III-IX.

Hibiscus cf. genevii (Rose Mauritius Mandrinette Hibiscus)

Hibiscus cf. genevii (Rose Mauritius Mandrinette Hibiscus)

150 (200)cm, Rose Mauritius Mandrinette Hibiscus is a rare and highly endangered, evergreen wild species from the island of Mauritius, where is was thought to be extinct until a couple of plants were rediscovered in 1968. The pure species has small leaves and rather large, very ornamental, pale rose flowers. In cultivation there is one genetic line present (our seeds) which most likely is of hybrid origin with probably Hibiscus boryanus as the second elder. Juvenile leaves in these plants are needle like and correspond to the species, however flowers have a somewhat different color with a more orange to salmon tinge. Hence we offer these seeds as Hibiscus cf. genevii, as the identity of these plants is still unclear. Easily grown in any rich, well drained substrate in full sun throughout the year and reduced watering in winter at a minimum of 20°C. Seeds from all Hibiscus species in section Lilibiscus (e.g Hibiscus arnottianus, Hibiscus cooperi, Hibiscus denisonii, Hibiscus fragilis, Hibiscus genevii, etc. ) germinate unevenly over a period of several months. Keep pots in a warm spot and the soil slightlly moist until germination will occur. IV-VII.

Hibiscus cooperi 'Naselai Pink'

Hibiscus cooperi 'Naselai Pink'

100 (250)cm, Hibiscus cooperi has been reinstated as a species of its own in 2019. At present it is only known from cultivation and supposedly native of the Melanesia region, where it is still grown on several islands. The first recorded specimen probably came from North Sulawesi, Indonesia. It is a low woody evergreen shrub with utmost showy, rose pink flowers with an inner red eye and a distinct white halo in the offered form 'Naselai Pink'. This form can be traced back to cultivated plants found near the village Naselai, Nakelo, Fiji island in 1965. In the garden trade Hibiscus cooperi is usually mistaken for Hibiscus storckii which is a different species and which is neither in general cultivation nor anywhere available in the general garden trade. Additional, there is a Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cultivar, namely 'Cooperi', which is often confused with the species. Even the Royal Botanical Garden at Kew cultivates wrongly identified Hibiscus cooperi in a white and rose form, and labeled as Hibiscus storckii. So if even Kew Gardens doesn't get it right with a proper identification ... Anyway, we do offer true to type seeds from Hibiscus cooperi 'Naselai Pink'. However, please keep in mind that 'Naselai Pink' is a particular color selection from Hibiscus cooperi and this selection is not stable. This means that flowers from seed raised plants will not be identical to this selection, but usually they are very close. Seeds from all Hibiscus species in section Lilibiscus (e.g Hibiscus arnottianus, Hibiscus cooperi, Hibiscus denisonii, Hibiscus fragilis, Hibiscus genevii, etc. ) germinate unevenly over a period of several months. Keep pots in a warm spot and the soil slightlly moist until germination will occur.

Hibiscus heterophyllus has semi-woody prickly stems, irregularly lobed to unlobed leaves covered with short hairs and showy, very large either yellow or pale pink (our seed stock) flowers with a dark red inner eye. For any rich, well drained substrate in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter carefully water plants and keep them at a minimum of some 15°C. Several vendors (even some in Australia) falsely offer seeds from Hibiscus sabdariffa under the name of Hibiscus heterophyllus. Seed capsules in true Hibiscus heterophyllus never have any reddish tinge, nor are they succulent, but they will change from green to light beige-brown upon maturity. Also, true and almost tree-like Hibiscus heterophyllus exceeds by far the size of its more shrubby cousin Hibiscus sabdariffa. We offer seeds from the true species. VII-IX.

Hibiscus insularis (Phillip Island Hibiscus)

Hibiscus insularis (Phillip Island Hibiscus)

120 (200)cm, Phillip Island Hibiscus is one of the most endangered plant species in the world. Hibiscus insularis was down to just two genetically distinct specimens in habitat on Phillip Island, south of Norfolk Island, 1.400 km offshore eastern Australia. It is a medium tall evergreen shrub with leathery, shiny dark green leaves with crenulate margins and very showy, greenish-yellow flowers turning to dark rose at maturity, and with an reddish violet eye. On adult specimens flowers are set in abundance, yet seed set is extremely erratic despite careful hand pollination. Most plants in cultivation are from cuttings from the last two wild specimens, thus the genetic variation is extremely low in this species, and which may be the cause of a very low seed set. Also, germination in this species in unpredictable and it will take several months to almost an entire year. As a matter of fact, it is probably the most complicated species we have to get going from seeds. Our seeds were collected in September 2023 and are as fresh as they can be. Each single seed is visually inspected and all potentially unviable seeds are discarded. Germination tests yielded a germination rate between 15% to 25% under optimal conditions. However, we cannot give any guarantee on germination. In the best case you may be able to raise some 1 to 2 seedlings from one seed package, in the worst case there will be no germination at all. So be prepared not to have any success! Sowing is the very same as for other tropical Hibiscus species. Prior to sowing preferably soak seeds for 48 h in luke warm water. Use any rich, well drained substrate and keep pots at around 25°C in a partially shaded spot. In their first years seedlings will look very differently from adult plants. Leaves will be very narrow and partially lobed, with time plants will develop adult entire leaves. For any rich, well drained substrate in a partially shaded (summer) to sunny (winter) spot at a minimum of some 20°C. Seeds are extremely limited and are supplied on a first-come-first-served basis.

Hibiscus mabberleyi spec. nov. (Mabberley's Hibiscus)

Hibiscus mabberleyi spec. nov. (Mabberley's Hibiscus)

180 (240)cm, Mabberley's Hibiscus is an in 2023 new described species which is extinct in nature, where it was supposedly native to some Mascarene islands. Few specimens are still grown by botanical gardens and a handful of private cultivators, where this species had been labelled Hibiscus denisonii until recently. Hibiscus mabberleyi has finely pubescent leaves. There are at least two genetic lines still alive in cultivation, one with white flowers upon opening, later fading to very pale rose (photo), and a second and much rarer one with flowers which will stay white. The rose flowering form is sometimes confused with Hibiscus x denisonii or Hibiscus storckii, which both are different taxa. All plants sold as Hibiscus storckii are in fact Hibiscus cooperi. Easily grown in any rich, well drained substrate in full sun throughout the year and reduced watering in winter at a minimum of 20°C. True to type seeds are worldwide exclusively available from Rareplants.eu . Seeds from all Hibiscus species in section Lilibiscus (e.g Hibiscus arnottianus, Hibiscus cooperi, Hibiscus x denisonii, Hibiscus fragilis, Hibiscus genevii, Hibiscus mabberleyi, etc.) germinate unevenly over a period of several months.

It is one out of few slightly fragrant Hibiscus species which are all endemic to the Hawaiian archipielago. Hibiscus punaluuensis has dark green, large oval leaves and showy slightly fragrant pure white flowers with a long protruding reddish pistil. Whereas most hibiscus species in section Lilibiscus can be easily propagated by semi woody stem cuttings, for us this has proven extremely difficult in Hibiscus punaluuensis, as only one out of several dozens cuttings may eventually root. So the easier way for propagation is via seeds. Our seeds are from pure, unhybridized, true-to-type plants.
