Product Overview

The Scarlet Mallow, hibiscus coccineus, is a dramatically attractive Native that has brilliant deep red flowers up to 6 in. across. A reliable bloomer from June through September. This native mallow is very versatile in planting locations from a swamp/pond to a dry landscape. Known as a " see-through " perennial, this palmate-leaved plant is a striking stand out in any pond, or landscape.
  • Hardy in zones 6 - 10, this mallow can reach heights of up to 8 ft.
  • Doing well in full sun to part shade conditions, this plant can live in up to 12 in. of water depth
  • Blooming all summer, the large, red flowers are a major attraction for hummingbirds, bees and butterflies
  • Stalks reaching up to 8 ft. tall can be left during the winter holding the ornamental seed pods or can be cut back to return in the spring
  • Purchasing a bog plant already potted in aquatic soil with an established root system is a real advantage it makes for a seamless transition into your pond with no shock to the plant which greatly reduces the chance for failure and encourages rapid growth

Questions & Answers

is this a red star mallow! does it require a lot of water in a landscape not pond?

Asked by campbell June 12, 2018

Answer

Hi Campbell! Red Star Mallow may be one of the common names for this plant. The botanical name for this one is Hibiscus coccineus. You will find it has many different common names. We raise this plant as a pond plant with its "feet wet", but I have seen it in totally dry, hillside landscapes. If you choose it in that pocation, just be sure to water it good the first couple of weeks after planting.

The pond plants were scrawny when they arrived, they didn't look anything like the stock photo and they didn't even survive the summer when I planted them as instructed
