Malvaviscus drummondii alba

White Turk's-cap

A white-flowered form of the normally red-flowered Malvaviscus drummondii (which see) that was given to us by Greg Grant of the Stephen F. Austin Arboretum in Nacogodoches, TX.  This Hibiscus relative is native to the Gulf Coast states and southward but widely grown elsewhere.  The Small Turk's Cap is a shrubby plant with flowers less than two inches long but flowering over a long period during the hot months.   In most of the South it is basically a perennial but it is more shrubby in the warmer sections. It is more cold hardy than the Large Turkscap (Malvaviscus arboreus) and sometimes self-seeds from the small white to red applelike fruits. Plant in a sunny bed or border with well-drained soil.
