SOLVED: Lost the tag.

Chariton, IA(Zone 5b)

I bought this hardy hibiscus about three years ago and also its mate, but I can't remember the names. Would anyone have any idea of the names I might be looking for?

Sorry, I forgot to say that the other one is pink.

How about common names?


Indeed, I think you are right!


Rosee Mallow and Swamp Mallow are the two I've heard bandied about

I've been searching catalogs and I am pretty sure they were tagged Lord and Lady Baltimore. Thanks you two for your help. I'll keep searching to make sure.

Brugie, that's very possible.

Here's Hibiscus moscheutos Lady Baltimore:

Lord Baltimore is described as red, but we have no photo: Here's a good shot for comparison: (If that's a match, we'd love to have your photo in the PDB :)

I just got Hibiscus Moscheutos 'Disco Belle Rosy Red' and should have a bloom open by tomorrow. The color is very similiar but the leaves are different. I will post a photo of it blooming.

I've got one more place to ask and will let you know.

Lima, OH(Zone 5a)

I went out and looked at Lord Baltimore and it has the Marijuanna type leaves on it, where the Disco Belle has larger wider type leaves, so my guess, Lord B.

High Desert, CA(Zone 8a)

Brugie... could this be a close match ... ? there are tons of photo on this site too. lmk if that helped.

Thanks MVR, but this is a hardy hibiscus to our zone 5. It is definitely Lord Baltimore.

go_vols, I added the picture to the PDB.

I just posted (in the plants database) the photos of my Hibiscus moscheutos 'Disco Belle Rosy Red' hardy hibiscus...

Glad you identified yours!
