Hibiscus 'Mocha Moon' (Rose Mallow) is a well-branched, deciduous shrub with large, slightly cupped, pure white flowers, up to 8 in. across (20 cm), adorned with a scarlet red eye. Their slightly ruffled, overlapping petals unfurl as the countless buds open to become wide and flat. Blooming continuously from midsummer to fall, each flower lasts about one day and stands out against the dark foliage of thick, leathery, maple-like leaves. The blossoms are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars. When the flowers are finished, their bright lime-green carpels remain, providing a nice contrast with the deep bronze-green foliage. Perfect backdrop or centerpiece for a sunny border.
