This wonderful native from NC, south and west to Texas, is one of the lesser-known of our native mallows. Our 2006 introduction is propagated from our original collection from Brunswick County, NC. Hibiscus aculeatus is found in upland bogs, roadside ditches, and coastal pinelands in the lower Southeast. Although Hibiscus aculeatus likes moist feet, we have had very good luck growing it in raised sandy berms with regular watering. The 4' tall fuzzy stems are clothed with lobed, okra-like leaves. From the leaf axils, plenty of 4-5" open, cone-shaped, light yellow flowers highlighted with a dark purple eye are produced from early summer until fall...attractive to hummingbirds. Virtually everything about Hibiscus aculeatus is fuzzy...do not approach without a razor in hand.
