This Frank Galloway discovery from Baldwin County, Alabama, is one of several white-flowered forms of our typically red-flowered southeast native, Hibiscus coccineus. The 8' tall green stems emerge in spring, clothed with green marijuana-like foliage. The stalks of Hibiscus 'Swamp Angel' are adorned with five-petaled, pure white flowers from summer through fall...a hummingbird favorite. Moist soils are best, but Hibiscus coccineus can make it through an amazing amount of drought as well.
