We love this awesome hibiscus with felty grey leaves (right off an Elvis picture) on 8' stalks, topped with 10" light pink flowers in late summer...a structural marvel and hummingbird favorite in the garden. Its native habitat of brackish wetlands in the Southeast US is a testament to the durability of Hibiscus grandiflorus under adverse conditions. In winter, we (and the birds) enjoy the dramatic hairy seed pods perched atop the sturdy old stalks. Who needs toilet paper by the outhouse, when you've got a couple of velvet mallows?
