Hibiscus  (Hibiscus moscheutos)

New plant for this year. Just loved the size and colour of these flowers
The swamp rose mallow is a multi-stemmed, shrub-like herbaceous perennial that grows up to 7' tall. It dies back in winter and re-sprouts in spring. The leaves are usually without lobes, 2"-3" wide by 6"-8" long, velvety (pubescent) beneath and smooth (glabrous) on top. The flowers are about 6" across, with white or pink petals and crimson centers. Some have heart-shaped leaves and huge flowers and come in many different colors.
Likes good garden soil. Feed and mulch well.
Light: Does best in full sun.
Moisture: Moist.
Propagation: By seeds or root division. Numerous cultivars and hybrids are available.
