Description

Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Sunset Hibiscus was introduced into Europe from East India by 1712 and listed by Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon in his 1806 American Gardener's Calendar. This herbaceous temperennial (often grown as an annual) is related to Okra, and bears large, showy, pale yellow blossoms in summer and striking, deeply-lobed, edible leaves.  The plants often self-sow, and are not attractive to deer.

Sow seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost date at 70˚F.  Transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost.  Approximately 10-11 seeds per packet.
