Turk's cap -  Malvaviscus arboreus penduliflorus

 

It attracts butterflies, bees and hummingbirds

Thought to originate from Central or Southern Mexico .

Fast growing evergreen shrub with downward pointing, red , pendant flowers. Flowers look like they are just about to open- but never do.

Blooms from summer to first freeze ( here in N Central Fl , until January or so)

Fairly drought resistant

Does  well with minimal care

 In tropical areas, these plants do best in light shade, while in more northern areas, a site in full sun with afternoon shade is best.

In hard freeze areas , it dies back to the ground and reemerge in spring and blooms by early summer
