Description

Rose Mallow is an herbaceous perennial native to low, marshy sites in eastern North America.  John Bartram sent seeds to England in the mid-1700's and Thomas Jefferson mentioned a number of hibiscus and mallows, including "Hibiscus moschentos", in his only published book, Notes on the State of Virginia (1781).  The mid-summer flowers are 5-8" in diameter with pink (sometimes white) petals and often a reddish-purple eye. Jefferson-documented: This plant was documented by Thomas Jefferson in his Garden Book, Notes on the State of Virginia, or other writings.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date at 70 degrees F.  For enhanced germination, scarify and pre-soak seeds overnight.  Transplant to 1 gallon pots once they have three sets of leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost.  Approximately 10 seeds per packet.
