Hibiscus moscheutos var. lasiocarpos, Crimsoneyed Rosemallow is a tall, showy plant with large, 6 inch diameter flowers with white or pink petals and wine-colored centers.  It has large heart-shaped leaves and is one of the largest wildflowers in the Ozarks.  Crimsoneyed Rosemallow Hibiscus prefers moist, humus-rich soil and full sun to light shade.  Rose Mallow contributes beautifully when used as an accent plant in the perennial flower garden or bog garden.  Native Hibiscus combines well with Cardinal Flower, Blue Lobelia, Blue Flag, Marsh Milkweed, and Foxglove Beard-tongue.

Rose-mallow is highly deer resistant and a good plant for wetland gardens and habitat. It can tolerate some shade but flowers best and resists potential diseases in full sun. Rose Mallow tolerates summer heat and humidity but the soil should be kept moist throughout the seasons.

Hibiscus lasiocarpos seed germination is improved after a pretreatment of 2 or 3 weeks of cold moist stratification or when planted outside in the fall or early winter.
