Abelmoschus manihot (Sunset Hibiscus) [12 Seeds]


Germination Information: Start the seeds indoors in late winter to mid spring, about 1/4″ deep, in a warm, bright place. A heat mat will help to speed sprouting. Set the seedlings outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. If you allow the seedpods to develop on the plant, you may find self-sown seedlings in that area next year.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Do you love hollyhocks but have trouble growing them? Consider giving this easy beauty a try. Sunset hibiscus (Abelmoschus manihot), also known as aibika, generally grows 5 to 6 feet tall over just one growing season, with large, single, hibiscus-like blooms in a lemon-sherbet yellow color from mid to late summer to frost. It’s excellent for quickly adding height to a new border while you’re waiting for more permanent plantings to fill in. Full sun for best flowering. Sunset hibiscus is perennial in Zones 8 or 9 and south, but you can easily grow it as an annual elsewhere.

Harvested in August and September 2021. At least 12 seeds.
