Malvaviscus penduliflorus is a perennial evergreen shrub that is native to tropical regions of Mexico. Its common name comes from its pendulous flowers that resemble unopened, or “sleeping,” hibiscus flowers. Lance shaped, slightly serrated leaves are covered in tiny hairs that give them a velvety feel.
Does best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade at the expense of some flower production. Allow soil to dry slightly between waterings.
