'Snowflame' stands 3-5 ft tall and blooms from mid summer to fall. It is attractive to hummingbirds while resistant to deer. The name Hibiscus came from the Greek word “hibiskos” that meant “marshmallow.” The sticky root or stem of some plant in the mallow family was used at one time to make marshmallow confections.
