Pavonia praemorsa

Does anyone have experience with this plant? We saw some at Baker Nursery today and thought it was attractive. I bought two small ones hoping I could put them near a bougainvillea against a west-facing wall. What do you think? They're not planted yet so if that's a bad idea, I can still return them.

Love the plant, but I have no experience with them. From what I read, they could use some shade in the afternoon. I never had much success planting anything near bougies; they just take over.

This is such a neat plant! The miniature hibiscus-like flowers open a buttery yellow in the morning sun and mellow to this luscious apricot just in time for the late afternoon sun to light them up.

They're still in the nursery pots in a protected spot. I hate to plant them now because I really don't want to kill them and am not sure where the best place will be. Maybe for now, they'll go into bigger pots for the summer and I'll figure something out in the fall.

Very pretty! Definitely keep us posted on what you do with them, and how it works out. It's a neat looking flower for sure! I'm familiar with P. multiflora, but not this species, so thanks for highlighting it. Keep us posted! Happy gardening and good luck with them! Take care, Grant
