Hibiscus Plants
Q.

Are these hibiscus plants

Anonymous added on August 22, 2015 | Answered

I planted some hibiscus seeds last spring and these plants came up after a prolonged time period. Would these happen to be developing hibiscus plants? If so, can I expect them to come back next year? This photo was taken yesterday.

    The leaves are somewhat reminiscent of hibiscus, but whether or not they come back next year really depends on the types of hibiscus you planted. Hardy hibiscus varieties can survive outdoors and will return each year but the tropical types cannot. These must only be grown indoors. All you can really do is just wait and see, though it may not hurt to pop one of these up and put in a container to over winter inside - just in case, so you will still have one.
