 Malvaviscus arboreus drummondii, Hibiscus drummondii, Pavonia drummondii
Family: Malvaceae
Dwarf mallow, Sleepy Hibiscus, Turk's Cap, Firecracker Hibiscus
Origin: Southern Mexico, Central America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This shrub looks much like a hibiscus (to which it is closely related) which flowers are ready to open. In fact, the flowers never open much, hence the common name of 'Sleepy Hibiscus'. It blooms often, and the flowers attract humminbirds. The 2 inch long tubular flowers appear to be constructed of crimson crepe paper as they nod against the large oval leaves. This shrub can grow to 10 feet in height. The plant often becomes vinelike when grown in shady situations, sending out long stems that clamber over and up adjacent trees and bushes.
