Family: Malvaceae

This beautiful evergreen shrub covers itself in clusters of honey-scented bright pink flowers from early October to mid-November. Unlike some other dombeyas, its flowers drop off cleanly after blooming. As no seed is produced, it's probably a hybrid. The actual D. elegans species, native to Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, looks somewhat different. This could be the USDA introduction Dombeya 'Pink Clouds', but images posted online appear to be a lighter pink. It's moderately fast growing to a height of 10 feet with dense foliage and branches ascending outward from a central crown. Plant in full sun to part shade. Drought tolerant once established. USDA zones 9 - 11. We previously sold this as the cultivar Dombeya 'Seminole' in error.
