Count your Blooms

This tropical Turk's Cap bush is loaded down with red flowers; little Spanish dancers on a green stage. A frost will kill it to the ground, so we feel lucky to have the blooms in late November. The plant will come back next year from the roots.
I read that it is also known as the sleeping hibiscus, as the flower petals do not open.
