Hairy Rose Mallow

Hairy Rose Mallow

Hibiscus lasiocarpus

Full to part sun, wet to moderately wet moisture level, rich soil.  3-6 feet height, white flowers with red centers.

Germination Code:  C(60)

Native Region:  Coastal Plain and Interior Low Plateaus

Easy to grow from seed.  Flowers are 5 inches across.  Full sun produces the best flowering and is the best environment for resisting disease.  Good for wetland gardens or other wet places in the yard.

Attracts birds and butterflies.  Sometimes caterpillars of the Painted lady and Checkered skipper butterflies feed on the leaves.  Deer may browse on leaves but plants are tough and grow back quickly.
