A southerly relative of our Rhode Island native Hibiscus moscheutos, this equally fetching swamp mallow produces 5-inch-wide white to pale pink flowers with maroon centers. Like our native species, it occurs in damp habitats in the wild, but adapts to average garden soils. Still, a rain garden would be nice!
