Hibiscus moscheutos

Common Rose Mallow

Plant Type:

SUN PERENNIALS

Hibiscus moscheutosLovely yet bold, simple but glorious is the Common Rose Mallow exhibiting their gentility in the full to mostly sunny garden in August / September. These are seed-grown with a genetic predisposition to be pale pink with occasional white individuals, nearly all with a candied raspberry eye though solid colors are possible. Autumn foliage color is a clear yellow. The seed heads are large and coarse but not uninteresting in the fall. There has been much breeding of hardy hibiscus but we love the gracious beauty of the species which gently vie for attention without assaulting the eye ostentatiously... subtlety can speak volumes! From many places in North America - Connecticut to Ontario, south to Illinois, west to Utah though apparently absent in Colorado and Arkansas. Site Common Rose Mallow in full to nearly full sun planted in fertile draining soil. Hefty, established seed grown potted plant.
