Swamp Hibiscus

 

Hundreds of tall (8-10″) hibiscus plants brighten our Tatum Sawgrass Marsh in summer with a spectacular display of large pinkish flowers. Hibiscus plants provide shelter for small birds and other marsh wildlife. Hibiscus flowers last only a day but new blooms open throughout the summer and fall. Each winter the leaves and stems of the hibiscus die back only to re-sprout in the spring.
