Rose of Sharon Alternative: Confederate Rose

(Hibiscus mutabilis)

Why it's a standout: Fall is this shrub's high season, when big ruffled flowers in white and pink tip its branches. Those grown in Zone 8 or colder die back in winter but return each spring as full-size shrubs with new shoots 6 to 8 feet tall.
What it needs: Full sun to partial shade; average soil
Zones: 7 to 10
