With all the exotic beauty of a tropical hibiscus in a tight compact form, Red Musk Mallow is even more desirable because it is so different and unique. All through the heat of summer and into fall it sports large breath-taking reddish-pink blooms with a white center and yellow stamen tube. Its deeply lobed leaves also give it an unusual appearance. Sometimes called Ornamental Okra, Musk Mallow gets its name from the fact that its fruit/seed capsules have a bit of a musky aroma.
