Rose Mallow
Hibiscus


Description:

These glorious plants with impressive large flowers make showy accents. In fact, the Hibiscus produces the largest flowers of any perennial!  It not only grows perfectly in average garden soil, but also does well in moist, windy areas. Although the Hibiscus grows tall, the need for staking is rare. These plants will die back to ground level during the winter months. Be careful to not over-water until plants show signs of growth!  Plants go well with:  Helianthus, Rudbeckia, Echinacea and Malva.

 

Common Name: Hibiscus, Rosemallow
Botanical Name: Hibiscus x, Hibiscus moscheutos
Type: Perennial
Soil Preference: This plant will tolerate occasional wetness and a little salt and will also grow in dry soils but prefers a well-drained, loamy, sandy or clay soil.  The pH preference is an acidic to slightly alkaline (6.8 - 7.7).
Light Requirements: Full Sun.  Flowering and growth in shade is poor
Attributes: Attracts butterflies.  Largest flowers of any perennial!  Needs little care once established
Pests: Aphids, Japanese Beetles, Spider mites, white flies, stalk borers, caterpillars.
Diseases: Crown rot, Root Rot, Leaf Spot, Rust, Canker, Blight
Good Companion Plants: Aster, Purple Coneflower, Miscanthus, Siberian Iris, Starflower, Helianthus, Rudbeckia, Echinacea and Malva.
Care: Cut back stems in early spring.  Propagate by soft-wood cuttings in the spring or by hard-wood cuttings in the fall. Plants can also be divided in fall or spring. Use Dipel or a Thuracide spray to control leaf eating caterpillars. Be careful to not over water until plants show signs of growth! Dead-head spent blooms. 

Planting Instructions:  Perennials
