Hibiscus coccineus or scarlet rose mallow, is a hardy Hibiscus species that looks much like Cannabis sativa (marijuana). It is also known as Texas star, brilliant hibiscus, scarlet hibiscus and scarlet rose mallow.
The plant is native to a marsh-like habitat. It dies back during the winter and grows from 7-10'. In addition to the scarlet flowering variety, a white flowering variety is also known as the white Texas star or lone star hibiscus.
