#hardyhibiscus finally my white one is blooming! The fence behind is 4ft. Tall and these things are 5&1/2 tall! Now mind you they get cut back to about 1&1/2 to 2 ft!! No wonder you can use them as hedges!!

@janelleabella we wack the hell out of these guys!!! We cut them to about 2ft. Tall in early spring! They can be cut any time they are one tough plant!! The reason we have them were they are is cuz the hubs hates the mess they make and outside the gate you don't see it so much!😁😁

Shelley have you had any issues with seedlings popping up ? You can donate those babies to a worthy loving caring home if they have ok ok I'm begging here hahaha ...lmao

@ShelleySnyder @drea0508 When planting a seed only place a few inches into the ground. You want the roots to form and hold foliage. Too deep and it takes awhile for it to come to the top or if too deep and it stays to wet it will rot. I water mine throughly then spritz top of soil to water after so inside soil doesn't get soggy. Unless u have it in the ground..cover with mulch and ck on it every few days after. Usually within 7 to 10 days u should see it coming to the top of soil...

@drea0508 how deep did you plant the seeds. Suppose to be no deeper than 1/2 inch and it takes about 2 to 4 weeks to germinate. But it can take longer. Do some research online as well there's a way to test for seed viability.
