Hibiscus (aka rose mallow) produces huge, tropical-looking flowers on hardy perennial plants. Each spring hibiscus will come back bigger and more vigorous than it did the year before. Plants need moist or even wet soil. Hibiscus grows beautifully in containers, bog gardens, or beds and can be used as a short and showy flowering hedge. Winter hardy to zone 5.
