Pink Turk's-cap

Small Turkscap is a hibiscus relative native to the Gulf Coast states and southward but widely grown elsewhere. It is a shrubby plant with bright red flowers less than two inches long but showy over a long period during the hot months and attractive to hummingbirds. This variety has flowers that are soft pink rather than red. A relatively recent Texas selection by Greg Grant and named for the late Pam Puryear who found and preserved many antique rose varieties.  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.
