Hibiscus 'Summer in Paradise' is a cultivar of perennial Hibiscus moscheutos, which is native to much of the eastern and southern portions of North America. It is indigenous to low wet areas such as ditches, swamps, marshes, and river and pond edges, hence the common name Swamp Mallow.
Hardy Hibiscus 'Summer in Paradise' prefers full sun to light shade and consistently moist soil. Plants tend to emerge late in spring. Allow stems to remain in fall for winter interest as well as to mark its location.
