Swamp Hibiscus is a vigorous long-blooming deciduous perennial with palmate dark green leaves.  Huge dark red flowers with a prominent red tubular stamen bloom from mid-summer until the first frost attracting butterflies.  Best bloom in rich, medium to wet well-drained soils. 

Hibiscus coccineus is a host for the Grey Hairstreak and Painted Lady butterflies, as well as several moths.  The flowers and nectar attract hummingbirds, bees and more butterflies.
