Features of Rose Mallow Hibiscus


Impressive plants with very large blooms. Good as a specimen or planted where soils tend to stay consistently wet. Good plant for wet sites. Long lived perennial and not needing division for many years. Full sun to light shade.


  • Prefer rich moist soils that stay consistently moist and will grow in areas that are wet.
  • Heavy feeders so fertilize in spring. May need winter mulch to overwinter in colder areas. Very late to emerge in the spring.
