The flowers of Hibiscus tiliaceus are bright yellow with a deep red centre upon opening.
Over the course of the day, the flowers deepen to orange and finally red before they fall.
Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds.
Most seeds require humidity to germinate, even desert plants like
require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.|
Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet,
the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
Hibiscus tiliaceus seeds will usually germinate in 30-60 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
Soak Hibiscus tiliaceus seeds in warm water, which should be changed daily. Most seeds swell up when they are soaked, those that do should be sown immediately. Seeds that don't swell can be gently scarified.
