Pink Turk's Cap

Malvaviscus arboreus penduliflorus Rosea, Pink Turk's Cap

I thought this was another species of Hibiscus, turned out it's not.  Turk's Cap blooms pale pink, coral and apricot twisted flowers that don't open.  This plant has bright green foliage great for lighting up shady areas.

"It is interesting that we call something good a "dream", but being called a "dreamer" is somewhat of a putdown.  Without dreamers, no dream would ever be given reality, and we would live in a very small and shallow world. 

If you are a dreamer, it's your time to announce yourself."

What an interesting flower! So the bud never opens, just sticks the working parts out the end! Amazing!!

I always thought they are of the hibiscus breed.
Great shots!
