Venice mallow (Hibiscus Trionum) 100 seeds (#969)

Upright bushy plants become smothered in exotic looking blooms that glisten with an eye-catching metallic sheen, accentuated by a strongly contrasting, chocolate colored central disk.
A seldom-seen annual or short-lived perennial, this easy-to-grow plant performs as the perfect filler in beds and containers. It forms a well-branched compact mound of deeply lobed, dark green leaves, which provide an interesting textural backdrop to its charming, hibiscus-type flowers.
While each flower lasts only a single day, the plant blooms profusely all season and produces inflated seedpods. The flowers will not normally open on a cloudy day, but this is a small price to pay for such a gem of a plant.
Easily grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Performs well in average garden soils.
It is best to start seed indoors about 8-10 weeks before the last spring frost date. Seeds may be planted directly in the garden at last frost date, but will take up to three months before first flowering occurs.
