We think this is a type of hibiscus but can’t find an example with this type leaf.

    Appears to be a variety of Hybiscus Moscheutos (mos-KEW-tos, but sometimes regionally pronounced mos-CHEW-tos). Commonly known as: Hardy Hybiscus; Rose Mallow; Swamp Mallow. Perennial, freezes back to ground in all but the most mild of climates, large (up to 8-10″ dia) saucer shaped blooms. Can be divided when dormant, and before new growth is 5-6″ high. Also some success with cuttings and layering. When blossoms drop (typically last 1 day) they can stain surfaces as they decay.

    Pretty sure this is Hybiscus Moscheutos (pronounced mos-KEW-tos but regionally may be pronounced mos-CHEW-tos). Common names include: Hardy Hybiscus, Swamp Mallow, Rose Mallow. Only variation in this image from plants that I have is that the stems and the mid-vein have a red color. Otherwise, leaves, buds, etc. Look the same.
