at Digging Dog
An old-fashioned southern “pass-along” plant, this grand long flowering shrub is endemic to the southeastern U.S., Mexico and Central America. Hummingbirds, butterflies, birds and bees swoon over its unique vermilion blooms whose overlapping petals resemble a turban, while
hibiscus-style, brilliant red floral tubes jut beyond. The fanciful fringed green buds and vivacious flowers appear from summer through autumn, adorning an undemanding open visage of fuzzy stiff upright stems, long petioles and lobed, heart-shaped flannel-like green leaves. Turk’s Turban grows as a large deer-
resistant evergreen in mild winter areas, makes an admirable, dense small-sized hedge with regular pruning and relishes moderate water plus shelter around 20°.
Size: 4' 0"–10' 0" high x 4' 0"–10' 0" wide. 8b/9
Malvaviscus arboreus (S-0829)
