Hibiscus coccineus, Walt. (H. speciosus, Ait.). Perennial herb, green and glabrous throughout, glaucous, 3-10 ft.: lvs. palmately lobed, or the lowest and sometimes all of them palmately compound, the divisions long- linear-lanceolate and remotely toothed: bracteoles about 1 ½ in. long, curved: fls. very large (5—6 in. across), rose-red, the petals obovate and conspicuously narrowed at the base; column of stamens very long. Ga. south in swamps. B.M. 360. R.H. 1858, p. 575; 1866:230.—This fine species is apparently not hardy in the northern states, although there are reports that plants have lived in the open in the neighborhood of Philadelphia. The roots should be stored in a cellar in winter. Plants have been carried over winter under glass when used in hybridizing.
