Double white Hibiscus plants

Here are some easy tips on how to grow Hardy Hibiscus plants: These hardy, fast-growing herbaceous perennials do best in moist soil rich in organic matter. But they will also grow in average medium to wet soil. Soil pH should be 6 to 7. Hardy Hibiscus plants like full sunlight and good air circulation. They need regular, deep watering. They do not need staking. Avoid windy locations to guard from windburn.

Botanical Name: Hibiscus moscheutos

Common Name: Rose Mallow

Pronunciation: hi-BIS-kiss

Propagation: Division of woody crown is challenging and best avoided.

Description: These tropical flowering plants grow 3 to 8 ft. tall and 5 ft. wide. Hardy Hibiscus plants only stay green year-round in areas without frost. These perennial plants have red, white, pink, or bicolored blooms and triangular leaves with saw-tooth notches. They bloom late (July) and right up to frost.

Origin: Native of USA swamps, marshes, and stream banks

USDA Zones: 4 – 9

Companion Plants: Baptisia, Campanula, Coreopsis, Coneflower

Maintenance: Low. Similar to daylilies, Rose Mallow flowers last only one day, then turn to mush and clump together. Deadhead before this happens. Stems need to be cut down in the late fall for new spring growth. Hardy hibiscus responds to pruning before flowering to create fuller plants. This may also help avoid early Japanese beetle damage.

Water Needs: In the first growth season, follow a regular schedule to set deep roots. Afterwards, regular moderate watering will do. In extreme heat, water more often; if soil dries out, leaf scorch sets in.

Display: Great choice for rain gardens, in borders or large pots

Wildlife Value: Deer resistant; attracts butterflies and hummingbirds

Pests/Diseases: Japanese beetle, aphid, whitefly

I've got to try white tea and rooibus this week if possible. Antioxidents are always welcome by me.
In the hibiscus tea blend from Peet's they have hibiscus leaves, rosehips,lemon grass, chamomile flowers and cinnamon stick. I'm thinking about trying to duplicate it because I can get big bags of dried hibiscus leaves at Smart and Final and the rest should be fairly easy to come by. I'm making it for a friend who shouldn't have sugared drinks so I'll use stevia or another artificial sweetener in the lemonade part.
