New Zealand hibiscus (Hibiscus trionum) produces near-white to pale yellow, dark-eyed flowers through the summer into fall; to about 2 feet tall. Its blooms may be lightly blushed with pink on the outside, depending on weather conditions. It gets another of its common names, flower of an hour, because it’s usually open just in the morning; new blooms come along each day, though. They are followed by interesting, translucent seedpods. Some folks adore the beautiful flowers; others curse the plant as a weed because of its ability to self-sow freely—just so you know. Full sun. Perennial in frost-free climates; grows easily as an annual anywhere.
Collected in August through October 2020. At least 20 seeds.
