HAVE: Fresh hardy hibiscus, fresh m. jalapa

posted by: Desirai on 08.11.2014 at 08:23 pm in Seed Exchange Forum

Hey there, I have fresh hand harvested seed from hardy hibiscus (hibiscus moscheutos) and mirabilis jalapa (4 o clock flower, marvel of peru)

Here's a picture of the hibiscus. They range from solid white, to pink white, to dark pink.

Here's a picture of some of the 4 o clocks. I can guarantee the seeds come from mixed flowers, but can't guarantee you'll get mixed flowers. Genetics :)

Hey all.

My dad loves his 4 o clocks. He has 4 colors. Yellow, baby pink, red, and fuschia.

They mix all the time, however I've never seen more than 2 colors mix.

However I have seen pictures of flowers with 3-4 colors in them.

How can you get the flowers to mix more than 2 colors?
