    Nice plant

    Turk's Cap does very well here in El Paso, Texas in spite of the hot, dry summers and freezing winters. Freezes to the ground in the winter but will make about 2' with abundant flowers by July. Fairly xeric when established and will also take some shade, as well as full sun. I've seen it grown as a hedge in Santa Barbara (no freeze). Very attractive plant.
