Splendour in the heart of our gardens

Hibiscus moscheutos, commonly referred to as hardy hibiscus, swamp hibiscus or swamp rose mallow, is a spectacular plant that adds a dash of dazzle and colour to the gardens of our four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette ®, situated by the Mediterranean Sea in the Var area, French Riviera-Côte d’Azur. Native to North America, this gorgeous plant features large, brightly coloured, cup-shaped flowers that bloom throughout the summer. So of course, our campers can revel in their beauty during their stay at the campsite!

Easy to grow and attracting plenty of wildlife, in particular butterflies and hummingbirds, Hibiscus moscheutos is a favourite here at our eco-friendly campsite, committed to cherishing the environment. Flourishing in beds, borders or patio pots, this plant brings an explosion of life and colour to every outdoor space.

Many medicinal properties

In addition to its undeniable beauty, this plant was used by Native Americans for its medicinal properties. The roots of the swamp hibiscus were used to treat sore throats and coughs, while its leaves were made into poultices to soothe skin inflammations.

As we see so often, nature’s bounty was an intrinsic part of ancient healing traditions.

Hibiscus moscheutos embodies beauty, diversity and versatility. Its dazzling flowers make it an absolute gardener’s favourite and a source of inspiration for nature lovers the world over.
