Marsh Hibiscus (Hibiscus grandiflorus)
Marsh Hibiscus: Hibiscus grandiflorus is a shrub-like, herbaceous, North American native species. Initially found in the southeastern states, the marsh hibiscus will grow in any warm, humid growing zone.
In its native ecosystem, you'd encounter this plant in partially sunny areas near fresh or brackish waters, including marshes, swamps, ditch banks, and edges of ponds and rivers.
If you own property with partially-sunny, wet conditions, a pond, creek, stream, or a slow-draining spot, TN Nursery would recommend this beautiful plant.
However, this plant is also very resilient and can grow in an area that is a bit dry or sunny if you are willing to provide sufficient water.

The Natural Beauty of Hibiscus grandiflorus
The marsh hibiscus is a graceful plant with a shrub-like appearance and large pink flowers that start blooming in the spring and continue throughout the summer months.
The stem grows about one to two feet high and bears alternating lobed leaves with a slightly serrated margin. The leaves are a lovely true green and are pleasing in their relative symmetry.
The marsh hibiscus blooms in a gentle whisper of pink with five petals; each petal forms a soft oval with ruffled edges. The petals also have a contrasting hot pink hue that appears along the bottom edge, near the middle of the flower. The center of the flower is creamy white to soft yellow.
