This tropical-looking beauty may surprise you: it's actually native to southern and eastern North America. Commonly called Swamp Mallow or Rose Mallow, Hibiscus moscheutos blooms 5" soft pink to white flowers from July to September. It doesn't fade even on the hottest summer days.
While Hibiscus moscheutos Swamp Mallow is happy in normal garden conditions, it is great for boggy and wet soil like the swamps and watersides where it originates. It prefers full sun and will not bloom if it gets too much shade.
It is late to emerge in spring (like all Hardy Hibiscus), and can be pruned early in the season to maintain a smaller size.
Hibiscus moscheutos Swamp Mallow perfect for wetland, pollinator, and native gardens!
