Abstract

A shrub of the MALVACEAE family with long slender branches up to about 6 meters tall. The branches are arranged spirally on the stem, are ovate, have long stalks and measure up to 15 cm long and 10 cm wide. Flowers are borne singly in the axils of the upper leaves, usually on rather long stalks. They have an epicalyx of 5–7 bracteoles about 1 cm long and cupular calyx about 2.5 cm long. The corolla is short-lived of 5 very showy, contorted-overlapping petals. Many varieties exist differing in size and color corolla, in single or double forms. The fruit (very rarely formed) is a capsule about 3 cm long.
