I mangaged to snag a few seeds from both my hotpink/red and light pink/blush dinnerplate hibiscus. Seems the blooms are over. ters

An acorn instead?

I'd say peel or open up the acorn thing, it seems like the acron to either made up of differnt sections or the skin thingy is just like that. try searching on the seedsite.co/uk to find a pic of the seeds (sorry I'm just too lazy to do it, LOL :p )

Thanks for letting me know, all I know is that hardy hibiscus seeds are small tiny insy round seeds, I honestly though for a moment that they were hiding inside! That does look big!

Stephanie, those are the seed pods...break them open to get out the seeds inside. wink There will be lots and lots of them.

Yep...You'll have probably around 30 to 50 seeds in each of those pods when you break them open. smile

kennyso, hey! wavey
I think my hibiscus are perennials! wavey TulsaRose,
Hummm, seed pods. I took that pic on macro setting. They appear much larger than they really are. Should I cut open anyway?

tcmers, wavey
Hummm, best way to get them open?

Stephanie, perennial and Hardy Hibiscus are one in the same as opposed to the Tropical Hibiscus. wink As far as your seed pods go, they appear to be from a Hardy Hibiscus and all you have to do is give 'em a good squeeze to pop open the outer shell covering.

flowering child,
I let mine split open on the plant and cut the pod off before the seeds fall out. I've never actually tried to open the pod.
