From the Hibiscus family, Turk's Cap has a long, attractive, protruding pistil that emerges from bright, red-orange, tightly furled petals making the most of their color by blooming against lime-green leaves. Exhilarating! Mala means mallow, viscus refers to the sticky sap, and arboreus is an indication of just how large this plant can get depending upon how close its site approximates its native conditions, i.e., well-drained soil, intermittent water, sufficient warmth in winter, and enough sun to bloom prolifically. Native range extends from Southern Mexico to  Central America. 5–12' T & W

Minimum temperature: 10° F
