One of my favorite plants!
The huge leaves are soft and fuzzy and the pink flowers smell deliciously like sugar cookies :)
This plant is a fast growing shrub and starts to flower in mid December here in Central Florida. The huge pink flower balls are pendulous (like holiday ornaments) and do look a lot like mophead hydrangea flowers.
|Also known as 'Pink Ball'|
Bees love the blooms.
Dombeya flowers December through January, is a low maintenance plant, requires no special soil but wants at least 6 hours of sun. This plant is not frost tolerant, but will grow back fast after a freeze!
