This is the first of five species we describe and grow. The first species is an short lived perennial hibiscus in (zone 7) and warmer that has clear yellow flowers up to 6" across with a maroon center/throat. It does well in well-drained to moist soils. The bloom season is long form June to October. Its large clear yellow flowers remind one of Okra on steroids. It is a favorite of hummingbirds and not to worry about its short life of 2-3 years for it reseeded freely. Native to the eastern seaboard and Gulf from North Carolina to Louisiana. Mature to 6'High x 3'Wide.
