Swamp Rose Mallow Hibiscus moscheutos

Observer

Description

Swamp Rose Mallow (aka Crimson-Eyed Rose Mallow) observed on the edges of a wetland, in the Post Oak Savannah vegetative zone of Texas, on both sides of Hwy-111 near its crossing with the Lavaca River. A large population exists here, especially along the fence lines paralleling both sides of the highway which crosses through the wetland. The unusual hibiscus in this area is notable for tall unbranched reddish stems and slender lanceolate/arrowhead leaves that are glabrous (not hairy) on the top side (and with reddish petioles). These are distinctively different than the green stems and heart-shaped hairy/velvety leaves of Hibiscus lasiocarpos (which is commonly found in counties further to the east). Flowering seems to begin a little later than these other types, and continues into the summer. Seeds at this location were collected, and resemble the smooth non-hairy seeds of H. lasiocarpos and moscheutos. The seed pods and secondary bracts are minutely hairy, but not velvety like those of H. lasiocarpos, matching more closely the key for H. moscheutos.

Dr. Orland Blanchard (now at University of Florida Herbarium) has reviewed a 2019 sample of the seeds, seed capsules and leaves, believing this to be part of a highly-variable H. moscheutos lasiocarpos group, in agreement with the current ID of a specimen from this same area at the Plant Resource Center (UT Herbarium):
https://prc-symbiota.tacc.utexas.edu/collections/individual/index.php?occid=1198416&clid=0.
That specimen has recently been scanned (but is not online yet), so is shown in the right-most photo.

Description

This plant has been observed to occur as an annual growing in the nursery area at the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory, but I never have seen it elsewhere in the area. It grows upright but almost like a short vine resembling a blackberry cane, reaching 2-3 feet tall. The photos are from a naturally-occuring specimen almost a foot tall that was dug up and potted in a 1-gal pot to assist in ID. Can you help?
