Hibiscus moscheutos, commonly known as swamp rose mallow, is a large, attractive native plant suited for sunny, slightly acidic, moist to wet sites like, as the name implies, swamps, but also brackish estuaries and floodplains. Each plant produces multiple stems resulting in a shrub-like appearance when stems are covered in large, dark gray-green leaves. From July to September, swamp mallow produces large, attractive, tropical-looking flowers that reach sizes of up to 6"-10" across; blooms range from white with dark purple centers to coral pink.

Reaching mature heights of up to eight feet tall, Hibiscus moscheutos makes for a great last-season living fence in wetter areas, as well as in wetland border plantings and rain garden. Although native to swamps, rose mallow will also do very well in the home garden if kept consistently moist.
