I have a beautiful Rose Mallow Hibiscus that gets very large deep rosy red blossoms but the label that came with it simply says its "Rose Mallow/Hibiscus" hibiscus moscheutos. The label also says it's a "mix" but I've only ever had the red blooms. Does anyone know the name so I can put it in my list?

If that sign in the first photo is correct then that is what you have. Disco Belle is a series of Hibiscus, such as 'Disco Belle Red' 'Disco Belle Pink" etc. It looks like you have 'Disco Belle Red'.

For the word "mix" on the label, it most likely indicates that the plant wholesaler supplied several different colors in she shipment and rather than label the color of each one, just put the word "mix".

Since linjarvis has added her image to the database as a 'Disco Belle Red' I would say this plant has been identified. Thumbs up

Rose Mallow per se is a species native to much of the United States. It blooms white, pink or some combination. Most of the Hibiscus we buy have been hybridized to heck and back.
