Malvaviscus arboreus

Turk's-cap

This subtropical Hibiscus relative is herbaceous in zone 8 but a shrubby evergreen southward. It produces bright red flowers 2-3 inches long. The petals do not open out flat like Hibiscus but it is a showy garden subject for the bed or border in mild areas. To overwinter these plants in marginal areas the tops can be cut back in late fall and the stubs mounded with sand and mulch which can be removed in spring. Given rich soil and ample water, these plants will thrive in hot summer weather.
