Description: Well, I have the pink Turk’s Cap and the white Turk’s Cap in stock, so I figured I needed the red Turk’s Cap too. Very pretty perennial shrub native to Texas. Produces red flowers during the warm season. Grows 3-4′ tall x 3-5′ wide in sun, part sun, part shade. I’ve found they like some protection from extended summer afternoon sun. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators love the nectar filled blooms. Birds and other critters eat the little fruits. Fast growing. Give it moist but well drained soil, and it’ll be happy.
This plant in the 1-gallon containers is 1-2′ tall and wide, not including the container.
This plant in the 2-gallon containers is 2-4′ tall x 2-3′ wide, not including the container.
