This Hibiscus is native to the U.S. coastal states from Texas to North Carolina. It is a wetlands plant but can tolerate drier soils the other marsh Hibiscus such as H. moscheutos, and H. coccineus.

2016 will be my first time growing this particular Hibiscus. Seeds germinated readily after an overnight soak.

I do love this plant. It reseeds nicely for me and the yellow is so perfect.

That looks like Abelmoschus manihot, not Hibiscus aculeatus.

MyRee, Welcome!
You do not show the new member banner, but I must have missed your previous posts. Anyhow I see you just joined on Feb. 17th and I think that is new enough to deserve a welcome!
