Hibiscus coccineus is a versatile native mallow that's equally at home in a swamp, submerged in a garden pool, or in a perennial border. The palmate-leaved (looks like a Japanese maple) Hibiscus coccineus has 6" brilliant red flowers on nice upright plants to 8' tall...a great see-through perennial. For us, Hibiscus coccineus flowers from June through October...attractive to hummingbirds. In the winter, we leave the stalks and enjoy the ornamental seed pods...great for arranging, both in the garden and in a vase!
