Rooting tropical hibiscus cuttings, hibiscus rosa-sinensis can be tricky and take a very long time .. years sometimes. Hardy hibiscus cuttings, hibiscus moscheutos in my experience root a whole lot faster.

Any time you root a cutting of ANY plant you have a clone that will be identical to the parent plant .. on the other hand, growing hibiscus from seed can be pot luck. For the most part, moscheutos seems to breed true to the parent but rosa-sinenesis usually doesn't.

Thank you so much for the info Xeolyte. I am hoping that I have a hardy hibiscus and will try taking a cutting to root and see what, if anything happens.
