Description:

Rose Mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos): Flowers continue to open into early September providing an unparalleled garden show on a plant that is so easy to grow with its love of sunny areas and tolerance of lots of soil moisture.

There isn't a plant with bigger, showier flowers in the garden than this plant with its huge summer blooms. It emerges late from the soil in the spring with big, round foliage on upright stems. Buds appear at stem ends in July and open later in the month to reveal huge, 8" diameter pink flowers with red eyes that will put every local hummingbird on alert for its nectar.
