Hibiscus lasiocarpos, Cav. Fig. 1832. Perennial herb, to 6 ft.: st.: and lvs. pubescent: lvs. ovate, more or less cordate, acuminate, toothed, often angular or slightly 3-lobed, the upper ones narrower: bracteoles linear- subulate and bristly: fls. white or pale rose with darker center, the petals 3-4 in. long: caps, very hairy. Swamps, Ky., west and south. G. F. 1:426 (reduced in Fig. 1832). Var. californicus (H. californicus, Kell. H. lasiocarpos var. occidentalis, Gray). Lvs. more uniformly cordate: caps, less hairy; seeds papillate: marshy places along Sun Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. It is strong- growing, to 7 ft., the st. terete or slightly grooved above, more or less pubescent: lvs. distinctly cordate, ovate, acute, shallow- toothed and not lobed, dull ashy gray beneath: involucre-bracts hairy: corolla white or rose, with a purple eye, 3-5 in. across: caps, pubescent. Although the name H. californicus is common in the trade, it is a question how much of the stock, if any, is this species. Certainly some of it is H. moscheutos. From H. moscheutos this species is distinguished by its cordate ashy- tomentose lvs. and hairy-ciliate involucre - bracts. The plant known to the trade as H. californicus is hardy.
