Swamp Rose Mallow

Hibiscus moscheutos ssp. palustris

A year-round star of the wetland plantings on the Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck, this beautiful Hibiscus is hard to miss in the summertime, thanks to its huge saucer-shaped pink flowers.

This New York native produces blooms throughout the summer season. It has stand out leaves, which spread to the size of a large hand and have a smooth, velvety texture. This plant supports many native butterfly species, including painted ladies and skippers.

Where to see this plant

Hibiscus moscheutos ssp. palustris can be found on the Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck on the High Line at 15th Street. This plant blooms on the High Line in summer, generally from July – August. As the plant matures in the fall, these spectacular blooms transform into beaked seed capsules that darken to a rich brown hue in the winter months.
