Additional Information About Confederate Rose Hibiscus

More About Confederate Rose Hibiscus...

The Confederate Rose, Hibiscus mutabilis,  also commonly known as Confederate Rose Mallow or Cotton Rose Mallow, is one of our favorites among all hardy Hibiscus. It has so many outstanding attributes it's hard to know where to start with a description...so we'll start from spring and move on from there. In mid-spring the plant emerges from dormancy and shoots quickly to 8-10 feet in the air. The foliage is quite bold with very large, soft, fuzzy green leaves, resembling those of the sycamore tree, providing an almost tropical look that is great for structure and texture even without flowers. In the Southeast, the flowers usually begin to emerge in early October and continue until the first hard freeze, which usually occurs in mid-to late November. The fully double flowers, resembling giant double camellias or peonies, are absolutely gorgeous, emerging white, fading to various shades of pink, and finally to a dark pinkish-red.

USDA Zone: 7A-11

Size: 8-10'H x 8'W

Sun Exposure: Full Sun or Part Shade

Soil / Moisture: Well-drained but consistently moist soil is preferred. Will appreciate supplemental water during summer droughts.

Special Care Tip: We remove all dead wood when new growth begins to emerge in spring, however this can be done at any time after the plant has gone fully dormant.
