Bush Park’s Featured Plant Sept.12


Hibiscus moscheutos (aka Rose Mallow): Our hibiscus is a hardy perennial that consistently overwinters here. We have three different varieties, all having large trumpet-shaped flowers with crepe-paper petals and long tongues (stamen and stigma) that attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Blooms mid-July through September. Located on the lower part of the Rhododendron Hillside Garden at the south end of the park.

‘Plum Crazy’ (pink-purple); ‘Fantasia’ (deep rose-pink); Kopper King (white)
