This deer-resistant 2005 introduction from Texan Greg Grant produces flowers that are over 1/3 larger than the typical turk's cap. Malvaviscus 'Big Momma' emerges in late spring and quickly rises to 6' tall, topped from midsummer until frost with bright orange flowers, swirled like a turk's cap...attractive to hummingbirds. Sticking out from the end of the floral swirl are the sex organs...and if I do say so, momma is well-endowed and proud of it! Invite 'Big Momma' into your garden for some down-home fun.
