Marsh hibiscus/Rose mallow
Hibiscus moscheutos is a tall showy perennial, native throughout the southeast. It is naturally found in wetland habitats, and grows best in full sun to part shade sites. This species typically gets to five feet tall during the growing season. Large red, white, or pink flowers bloom in the summer and attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators. It becomes fully dormant in the winter, but if the dead stalks are left in place they become excellent over-winter pollinator habitat. It is a host plant for several native butterfly species. Hibiscus moscheutos is great for stormwater plantings, wetland mitigation, or as a specimen plant in a rain garden.
