2-3" sleepy scarlet blooms are held upright along and at the ends of the woody stems from late spring to fall or year round in mild climates. Considered the largest blooming of the turk's caps. An excellent perennial for Hummingbirds. Introduced by Gregg Grant of Stephen F. Austin University.

Largest blooms of all turk's caps, a perennial in zones 7B-11. Likes full sun to part shade, growing 5'x3' at maturity. Hummingbirds love the nectar. All summer the tips of the woody stems send up 2-3" scarlet blooms that are swirled like a turk's cap. A herbaceous perennial growing quickly in spring. Lovely velvety green foliage.

This deer-resistant 2005 introduction from Texan Greg Grant produces flowers that are over 1/3 larger that the typical form. 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.
