scarlet rosemallow, Hibiscus coccineus

If any southern flower can bring some heat, it's got to be this. Just as large as our other large hibiscus, and certainly the brightest of the bunch. Often called Texas rosemallow. It doesn't grow wild there, but you can understand why they might want it.
It does grow in AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, and VA. Clarke Co GA, 7/7/18.
