Pavonia braziliensis

As with our native pink rock rose (Pavonia lasiopetala), this species is a relative of the more tropical hibiscus, but it is more drought and cold-tolerant. Brazilian rock roses should be planted in full sun since they can grow up to three feet in height and four feet in width. Although it will stay smaller in the shade, it will still bloom profusely. With their pale pink petals, almost white, and deep magenta centers, these flowers will attract many butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.

The rock rose performs well in rocky soil, so it is a great choice for gardens along rocky roadsides and also for xeriscaped gardens with decomposed granite or other gravelly substrates.

While Brazilian rock rose is evergreen in mild climates, it is deciduous in colder climates. Shearing to the ground is unnecessary for winter, but light pruning in early spring will encourage bushier, less leggy growth. If you have the time, you can lightly shear the plants during the growing season to encourage more of those gorgeous little flowers.

Providing Brazilian Rock Rose with plenty of space will allow it to spread gracefully and soften surrounding hardscapes.
