    I believe Confederate Roses, like Devil’s Trumpets, etc are toxic. Neither my pets nor I have ever tried to consume it in any way, other than to enjoy its beauty. I have a photo of its blooms as my avatar on YouTube. When I lived where one lives now, I always pulled/cut the previous year’s canes, kinda like hydrangea but CR’s old canes produce even less in later years

    Yes, Jennifer is correct. Wonderful fall bloomer. Hibiscus mutabilis, also known as the Confederate rose, Dixie rosemallow, cotton rose or cotton rosemallow, is a plant long cultivated for its showy flowers. Originally native to southern China and Taiwan,[1] it is now found on all continents except Antarctica. (from Wikipedia )
