Hibiscus aculeatus (Pinelands Mallow)

Hibiscus aculeatus (Pinelands Mallow)

SunZone: 7-10 48" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! This wonderful native from NC, south and west to Texas, is one of the lesser-known of our native mallows. Hibiscus aculeatus is found in upland bogs, roadside ditches, and coastal pinelands within the Southeast. Although it likes moist feet, we have had very good luck growing it in raised sandy berms with regular watering. The fuzzy 4' stems are clothed with lobed, okra-like leaves. From the leaf axils, plenty of 4-5" open, cone-shaped, light yellow flowers highlighted with a dark purple eye are produced from early summer until fall. Virtually everything about this plant is fuzzy...do not approach without a razor in hand. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05905

Hibiscus coccineus (Scarlet Mallow)

Hibiscus coccineus (Scarlet Mallow)

SunZone: 6-9 96" tall Origin: USA
This versatile native is equally at home in a swamp, submerged in a garden pool, or in a perennial border. The palmate-leaved (looks like a Japanese maple) hibiscus has 6" brilliant red flowers on nice upright plants to 8'...a great see-through perennial. For us, H. coccineus flowers from June through October. In the winter, we leave the stalks and enjoy the ornamental seed pods...great for arranging, both in the garden and in a vase! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #01215

Hibiscus coccineus 'Swamp Angel' (Swamp Angel Mallow)

Hibiscus coccineus 'Swamp Angel' (Swamp Angel Mallow)

SunZone: 6-9 96" tall Origin: USA
This Frank Galloway discovery from Baldwin Co., Alabama, is one of several white-flowered forms of our typically red-flowered southeast native Hibiscus coccineus that has been recently discovered. The 8' tall green stems emerge in spring, clothed with green marijuana-like foliage. The stalks are adorned with five-petaled, pure white flowers from summer through fall. Moist soils are best, but H. coccineus can make it through an amazing amount of drought as well. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07286

Hibiscus 'Cranberry Crush' PPAF (Cranberry Crush Hardy Mallow)

SunZone: 4-9 48" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
NEW! This superb hibiscus hybrid from Walters Gardens is one of the most stunning selections we have grown. The brilliant red, almost scarlet flowers are unlike other hardy hibiscus whose red flowers are usually based in the blue spectrum. The 4' tall stalks are topped from midsummer through early fall with the 7" wide, heavily-textured flowers with nicely overlapping petals. Moist soils are best, but the hardy hibiscus are very drought-tolerant. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08808

'Fantasia' is a heavy-blooming hybrid that boasts large, flat, rosy-pink flowers to 9" in width. Each flower is highlighted by a darker, rosy-red center pattern. The compact 3' tall plants with green foliage are adorned with flowers from midsummer until early fall. If you like your flowers "a little on the tacky side," you need this new mallow!

Hibiscus grandiflorus (Velvet Mallow)

SunZone: 6-9 96" tall Origin: USA    alternate image
Open House/Web-Only! We love this awesome hibiscus with felty grey leaves (right off an Elvis picture) on 8' stalks, topped with 10" light pink flowers in late summer...a structural marvel in the garden. Its native habitat of brackish wetlands in the southeast US is a testament to its durability under adverse conditions. In winter, we (and the birds) enjoy the dramatic hairy seed pods perched atop the sturdy old stalks. Who needs toilet paper by the outhouse, when you've got a couple of velvet mallows? Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #01120

Hibiscus 'Kopper King' PP 10,793 (Kopper King Mallow)

SunZone: 4-9 48" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
This exciting hybrid from Nebraska's famous Fleming brothers represents the culmination of 50 years of breeding. H. 'Kopper King' has stunning, dark purple foliage on a stocky 4' tall clump. From midsummer until early fall, the clumps are topped with giant, 1' wide, light pink flowers with a dark red eye and dramatic red veining. Designers should have a ball with this new mallow.

Hibiscus makinoi (Makino's Mallow)

Hibiscus makinoi (Makino's Mallow)

SunZone: 7b-10, at least 84" tall Origin: Japan
NEW! This little-known deciduous mallow is the Japanese kissin' cousin of the Chinese Hibiscus mutabilis. For us, H. makinoi never reaches more than 7' tall, although in its native Kyushu and Ryoku Islands, it can reach 15' tall. In NC, it dies to the ground each winter, regrowing into a widely-branched plant, clothed with large, fuzzy, green maple-like leaves and adorned, starting in early October, with dark pink buds that open into 4-5" large very light pink flowers. An extract from this renaissance plant is found in anti-aging creams since it triggers the creation of estrogen. Growing them in the garden sure makes me feel young! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07903

From retired plant breeder Dr. Moy at the San Antonio Botanical Garden comes this giant-flowered mallow hybrid that took Texas by storm. H. 'Moy Grande' certainly boasts one of the largest flowers we have seen on a hardy hibiscus, reaching sizes in excess of 1' across when grown in rich moist soils...what else could you expect from Texas, but BIG? Dozens of the giant, bright, rosy, blue-red flowers adorn the 5' tall x 5' wide clump each day from midsummer until early fall. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #03659

The 10' tall woody hibiscus is clothed with 9" wide, fuzzy, maple-shaped leaves and topped from late August until frost with 4" cupped pink flowers at the top of each branch. Because of the height, we recommend cutting the plants to the ground each spring to better view the flowers...unless you do your garden viewing from a deer stand.

Hibiscus 'Peppermint Flare' (Peppermint Flare Mallow)

Hibiscus 'Raspberry Rose' (Raspberry Rose Mallow)

Hibiscus 'Raspberry Rose' (Raspberry Rose Mallow)

SunZone: 6-9, at least 84" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
Hibiscus 'Raspberry Rose' is the plant that stops everyone in their tracks during our summer Open House. H. 'Raspberry Rose' has also been a favorite of ours for years due to its sheer abundance of 10" bright raspberry-red flowers. We grow quite a few hibiscus, and none come anywhere close to producing as many flowers. Each clump can get quite large, to 7' tall x 10' across, so allow plenty of room. Remember that nine out of ten hibiscus surveyed prefer rich, moist soils...this is one of the nine. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04690

Hibiscus 'Red Flyer' (Red Flyer Mallow)

Hibiscus 'Red Flyer' (Red Flyer Mallow)

SunZone: 6-9, at least 144" tall Origin: USA Hybrid    alternate image
Open House/Web-Only! This is our own hybrid of two US natives, Hibiscus coccineus x Hibiscus grandiflorus. The result is a monster plant, towering to 12' in height. The marijuana-like foliage comes from Hibiscus coccineus and its resistance to insects from Hibiscus grandiflorus. The hybrid vigor came from really good sex. For us, Hibiscus 'Red Flyer' starts flowering in mid-July and continues until frost. Plenty of nutrition and moisture will produce the best results. Hibiscus 'Red Flyer' is sterile, so don't expect any offspring nearby. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04691

'Robert Fleming' is topped with clusters of large 7" shiny, black red flowers, the most intense red we've ever seen...sure to be noticed in the garden. I could not find any matching color in the RHS color chart, so this is obviously a color not allowed in the old UK. Moist soils are best, although these are amazingly drought-tolerant. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08347

Hibiscus 'Royal Gems' PP 11,011 (Royal Gem Mallow)

Open House/Web-Only! This new Fleming hybrid makes a 3' tall deciduous clump of upright stems clothed in dark purple leaves. The clumps are adorned, starting in midsummer and continuing until early fall, with large, 8" fluorescent pink flowers, each with a contrasting red eye...sounds frighteningly like when I looked in the mirror after election night. Moist soils are best, but Hibiscus 'Royal Gems' is quite drought-tolerant. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #03843

The 8' tall stems remain woody and are clothed during the growing season with glossy, dark green, maple-like leaves. The stems are adorned with 4" widely cupped lavender flowers, highlighted by a bright red central blotch, from June through the summer. If you get bored with your plant, various parts can be used as a diuretic, an expectorant, or to reduce bloody stools. I often have those when I sit too close while weeding around my agaves. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07904

'Summer Storm' produces 5' tall stalks, clothed with deeply lobed dark purple leaves, and adorned from July until September with both axillary and terminally produced, 10" wide, medium pink flowers, highlighted with a dark red center and bloodshot-eye-like red veins. Moist soils are ideal, but these are amazingly drought-tolerant in the short term. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #09132

Hibiscus 'White Buddy Jewel' (White Buddy Jewel Mallow)

SunZone: 4-8, at least 36" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
From Illinois hibiscus breeder Bill Morrison comes an unusual H. moscheutos hybrid. The compact 3' tall plants are covered with flowers from midsummer through fall. The 10" wide white flowers are highlighted by a bright red central blotch, and the unopened buds are flushed with swirls of pink on the outside tips...reminds me of staring face-to-face at a one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater...your age is showing if you remember back that far. As with all hardy hibiscus, they prefer moist soils but are amazingly drought-tolerant once established. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07962

Hippeastrum
Hippeastrum 'Voodoo' (Naughty Lady Amaryllis)

Hippeastrum 'Voodoo' (Naughty Lady Amaryllis)

Sun to Part SunZone: 7b-10, possibly colder 20" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! In our garden, Hippeastrum 'Voodoo' makes one of the most stunning shows imaginable. Our 7-year-old specimen produces over 130 flowers on 20" tall stalks, starting in mid-April and continuing into May. This mysterious amaryllis appears to be a modern-day remake of the original 1700s cross, Hippeastrum 'Ackermanii', released by Dutch Ludwig and Co. in the 1960s. Just like Hippeastrum 'Ackermanii', Hippeastrum 'Voodoo' is composed of deer-resistant wide glossy foliage, tinged bronze in full sun, and clusters of red flowers with white central patterns. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04937

Hippeastrum x johnsonii (Hardy Amaryllis)

Hippeastrum x johnsonii (Hardy Amaryllis)

Sun to Part SunZone: 7-10, possibly colder 20" tall Origin: Hybrid
The origin of this coveted first hybrid amaryllis from circa 1800 has been debated for years but is most often regarded as the result of a cross of H. reginae and H. vittatum. The result is an amazingly hardy amaryllis, with reports indicating hardiness of Zone 5. The broad green foliage takes on a delightful coppery hue in full sun. In early May, the fast-multiplying, deer-resistant clumps contain as many as four stems per bulb and six flowers per stem. Each flower is a sweetly fragrant, bright red trumpet, with a dramatic white star pattern in the center. Good drainage in the winter is key to increased hardiness. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04304
