Perennial Hibiscus, Rose Mallow
Among the showiest flowering plants. Plants typically bear funnel-shaped blossoms, often with prominent stamens. The many species offer a wide range of flower colors.Hibiscus moscheutos
Native to eastern U.S. This species produces the largest flowers of all hibiscus, some reaching 1 ft. across, on an upright, shrubby plant 6 to 8 ft. tall and 3 ft. wide. Bloom starts in late spring or early summer and continues until frost, with most flowers in the red, pink, rose, and white range, many with a red eye. Oval, toothed leaves are deep green above, whitish beneath. Plants die to the ground in winter, even in mild climates. For most spectacular bloom, feed at 6- to 8-week intervals during growing season. Protect from wind. Seed-grown strains often flower the first year if sown indoors and planted outdoors early.'Blue River II'
