You will be receiving fresh seeds harvested from my personal garden. These seeds were harvested within the past 120 days. They were hand-pollinated and crossed with various Hibiscus plants in my garden, most of the tropical variety. The flower color, shape, and design is unknown. The germination rate, speed of growth, and amount of time to flower is unknown. I guarantee that these are real legit seeds but cannot guarantee germination as there are many factors involved. There are no returns or exchanges allowed with seeds. These will ship in a ziplock baggie in a padded envelope, USPS Ground Advantage w/tracking.
