Bog Plants: Water Hibiscus

Bog Plants: Hibiscus

Water Hibiscus add a touch of the exotics to your water garden with the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus. This hardy perimeter pond plant features jagged, maroon leaves and creates a stunning contrast to the light and dark green leaves or colored blooms of your other pond plants. Its most beautiful feature, however, are its deep red flowers,
which bloom during the late summer nights and serve as a beacon to passing butterflies and hummingbirds at daybreak.
Native to the tropics, this fast growing, easily cared for plant can reach an impressive 5-feet tall and 3-feet wide in a single growing season. Because of its
growth tendencies, the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus benefits from regular thinning and pruning. For best growth, plant in the marginal areas of your water garden
in water 2″ to 6″ deep. Overall, this plant is sensitive to frost and should be cut to the ground before winter. Zones 7 to 11.
Hummingbirds are primarily attracted to bright colors such as, red, orange and dark purple colors. Tubular shaped flowers are among their favorites because of
the amount of nectar they can hold. While flower clusters also attract them, they don’t hold as much nectar and the hummingbird has to make more trips expending
more energy to consume
Water hibiscus (Hibiscus moscheutos) sometimes called swamp mallow or swamp rose mallow is a medium size shrub that has stunning 10-12 inch flowers.
They range in colors from white to deep red. This hibiscus is hardy to Zone 5 and up. This hibiscus prefers moist soil or water up to 4 inches deep
but will tolerate even dry soil. Plant in sun to part shade. Its average height ranges from 24 inches to 36 inches and will spread 2 – 4 feet.

This is a very easy bog plant to grow and performs well needing little care. Its the perfect bog plant for along your pond, stream or bog area.
You’ll be amazed at the butterflies and hummingbirds that are attracted to this plant.

When wintering over cut back the stems. This plant can be propagated by division
