Turk’s cap mallow is a Florida-Friendly shrub related to hibiscus. The lovely flowers, usually red, appear as if they’re just about open fully, but never do. Turk’s Cap Mallow start blooming at the beginning of the summer and will keep going until the first frost. A staple of “old Florida” landscapes, they add a cheerful pop of color at a time when many summer-flowering plants have fizzled out and cooler season plants haven’t yet peaked.
