Hibiscus coccineus is a vigorous, sturdy, erect, woody-based perennial that typically grows 3-6′ tall and features showy, hollyhock-like, 5-petaled, bright scarlet red flowers (3-5″ diameter) over a long, mid-summer to early fall bloom period.

A large plant for the rear of the perennial border, mixed border or courtyard. Also effective when grouped in moist locations such as the edge of a pond or stream. Sometimes commonly called swamp hibiscus because it is native to marshes and swamps in Alabama, Georgia and Florida.

Grow in average, medium to wet soil in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun or light shade. Tolerates summer heat and humidity, but soil should be kept moist.
