Hibiscus coccineus

Hibiscus coccineus

Hibiscus - Swamp

Swamp Hibiscus has deep red flowers with separated petals in July, over light green dissected foliage. Native to the southeastern US, it gets its common name because it is often found in marshes and swamps in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.  Host plant for numerous caterpillars like the Gray Hairstreak and Painted Lady butterflies, moths and skippers. Hibiscus coccineus is the most wild or native looking of the Mallows we grow and it is loved by ruby throated hummingbirds.

PRN Preferred:  Flowers look more natural and 'wild' than most Hibiscus.
