Malvaviscus drummondii is a unique deer-resistant hibiscus relative. This Southwest US native has round green leaves clothing the 5' tall woody stems. Beginning in late summer and continuing through fall, turk's cap clumps are covered with hundreds of cute, brilliant reddish-orange, hibiscus-like flowers with unique swirled petals that never manage to fully open...a hummingbird delight. We advise you to register your malvaviscus as a sex offender since it dangles its sexual organs in clear view of everyone...a seriously exhibitionist plant!
