Pavonia, Rock Rose

Pavonia lasiopetala

Rock Rose is an extremely drought tolerant Texas native found thriving in the hot and dry areas across the state. This shrub like perennial has a very loose, lanky growth habit that resist forming any uniformed shape as it matures, encouraging regular pruning but can manage fine without.

Small five-petal flowers are no more than one inch across, appearing in the early summer and lasting till fall. The woody base and roots can be protected by winter freezing and death with a healthy layer of mulch. No real pest or disease problems.
