Hibiscus coccineaus
Texas Star Hibiscus

Hibiscus coccineaus - Texas Star Hibiscus


A Texas Native, Hibiscus coccineaus is a tall, slender perennial Hibiscus that produces large bright red, 5 petal flowers from summer until fall.  The foliage has large 5 fingered palmate leaves with serrated lobes and because of this has embassingly been mistaken as Cannabis sativa on more than one occasion, even calling out the Swat Team here in the Houston area!  Not to worry this plant is totally unrelated. Texas Star Hibiscus can grow to 6 feet tall and is adaptable to many soil types as long as it has ample moisture, and it is often found in bog areas and in Texas wetlands. Texas Star Hibiscus blooms on new growth and can be cut back after flowering to maintain size and encourage new bloom, and after first freeze cut back to the ground.  It is a great plant to attract ruby throated hummingbirds, bees, and birds to your yard and works great around ponds and bogs.
