Hibiscus dasycalyx (Malvaceae)
(hi-BIS-kus day-zee-KAY-lix)
Neches River Mallow

This is one special hibiscus! Finely disected foliage emerges red then turns green. In summer, 4" wide flowers open, pure white accented by a central burgundy-red eye on 4' plants. Due to habitat loss, this TX native is now endangered. Likes wet feet and poorly drained soils, but is adaptable to average sites.
