Small Turk's-cap

This Hibiscus relative is 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. 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.
