Photographer's note: "I think scarlet rosemallow is the most beautiful native hibiscus in the U.S. I spotted this large patch growing on the west side of I-75 as we headed to Florida. I had to get muddy and wet to take this image. The species is rare in Georgia. This is the first time I have seen it."
