Hibiscus Luna Seed
Hibiscus moscheutos Luna is a fun-packed upright growing perennial, reaching approx 4ft tall and flowering prolifically all Summer long.
Seed Mix – Hibiscus moscheutos – White, Pink, Rose, Red.
Flowers are Best in Full Sun but require water-retentive soil to perform at its best.
Loved by Bees and Hummingbirds this Heat Tolerant bushy perennial dies back to ground level after a hard frost and can be easily cleaned up by cutting back the dry brittle stems.
Birds love Hibiscus moscheutos Luna seed heads and enjoying a feast from the abundance of seeds produced in mid Summer and Fall.
Great for a rain garden or to create an informal seasonal hedge, cutting back the large stems should be left as long as possible, covering the crown of stems with mulch or compost.
Easily raised from Hibiscus Luna Seed, keep seedlings moist and pot up often to maximize growth and early flowering. Water well during dry-spell to prolong flowering and keep foliage vibrant.

Cold Stratification or Direct Sowing: Recommended. (See Winter Jug Method )
Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. When starting seeds indoors, sow finely and barely cover seeds with soil. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early. Also known as cold stratification and can be completed anytime of the year by placing seed packs in a cool drawer of a refrigerator for 4-12 weeks to break seed dormancy.
1) Sow direct in a prepared weed-free seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location in small pots outdoors
3) Under lights indoor grow room
4) Bright windowsill with drip tray and propagator cover
I like to grow in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.
Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this native plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun.

Native plants maintain balance and provide habitat and eco-systems for resident and migratory wildlife. Due to many years of ecological destruction, development and toxic pollution many native wild flowers, and wildlife are under-threat of extinction.
We all have an important role to play, no matter how small your garden or balcony a few plant pots filled with natives instead of alien ornamentals of genetic hybrids that offer very little to no benefit to feeding insects and birds.
Time to make a small difference on a global scale and encourage our neighbors friends and families to sow a patchwork quilt of native wildflowers like a blanket to protect our sacred planet!
