I'm looking for them too,, boohoo I used to have that plant and had to move, and left mine at the other house. It was well established and huge, so I couldn't dig it up.

The same market only had the Texas Hibiscus in 5 gal for $25.oo about 5 ft tall will have to get it in my pickup tomorrow. Can anyone tell me where to find the Native Louisiana Hibiscus? I know 3 people that are looking for them including me.

I can't find where to get seeds either. I've only read that they grow wild in LA and that one would have to get it from a growing ditch, but I think that might be illegal? I've never seen one just what your sister said Jimmy they are a pale yellow, almost greenish in color.
