Halberd Leaved Rose Mallow has large, showy pink flowers up to six inches in diameter. A good candidate for pond margins or water features, Hibiscus laevis is a native of marshes or moist low-lying areas in the eastern half of the U.S. It naturally prefers rich moist soil, but also does perfectly well in fertile garden soil. A relative of the Hollyhock, it attracts butterflies with its showy blossoms.

The Automeris Io moth, Gray Hairstreak, Straight Lined Mallow moth, and many others use mallows as host plants.
