Great Red Hibiscus, a perennial native to the coastal swamps of Georgia and Florida, was adopted as an ornamental in American gardens by the end of the eighteenth century, when George Washington ordered a plant for Mount Vernon. The species was recommended by Robert Buist in The American Flower Garden Dictionary (1839).

In late spring or summer, sow seeds where the plants are to grow, covering with no more than half an inch of soil. Specimens reach six to eight feet high, with palmately lobed leaves and bright scarlet blossoms that resemble large hollyhocks. Beginning in their second season, the plants flower from mid-summer until cold weather. Sun or part shade, moderate to abundant moisture, and rich soils are recommended. USDA Zones 6-10.

Approximately 8 seeds per pack.
