Turk’s Cap is a drought-resistant member of the Malvaceae family, which also includes hibiscus, cotton and various mallows, among others.  It forms a multi-branching bush that grows several feet high, but can be pruned back to a desired size.  It can grow in full sun to deep shade, with a long bloom season through summer and into fall.  The flowers consist of approximately 2 inch long petals that fold into each other and create a tight bloom that doesn’t “open”.  The bright red flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds and put on a striking summer show.

Turk’s Cap gets it’s informal name from it’s flower that resembles a fez, the type of hat previously worn by some Turkish men (you may have seen them worn in Shriner parades in the U.S). The plant’s variety name ‘drummondii’  is named after Thomas Drummond the Scottish botanist who curated the Belfast Botanic Garden in the early 1800’s.  Drummond arrived in Texas in 1833 (when Texas was still part of Northern Mexico) and over 21 months collected over 2,000 specimens of plants that he sent to Sir William Jackson Hooker, the founder of Kew Botanical Gardens in London.  Drummond’s collection was the first from Texas to be distributed to museums and scientific institutions around the world and there are 28 other Texas plant species named in his honor.

The Torch Lily, also called Red Hot Poker plants, are drought tolerant perennials (hardy through zone 4) that are easy to grow.  These South African natives produce showy flowered spikes form spring through fall and are vibrant in summer heat, just when many other plants are fading.  Plant in full sun in well drained soil.  Feed with a general purpose fertilizer when planted, and once per month thereafter.  Once established they will need little care.  Depending on the variety, they will grow from two to five feet high.  A wonderful bonus – hummingbirds love them!
