Plant Description

red-orange with a golden center. Although it is not winter hardy here, it will reseed a bit, as you would expect from a Pavonia. We recently picked up this butterfly nectar plant at a botanical garden plant sale in Southern California. Its botanical name alludes to the Misiones Province in Northeast Argentina, one of the areas where it grows wild.
