The common name Many Flowers is an accurate one for Pavonia multiflora, as this semi-tropical blooming shrub is nearly always in bloom with colorful unique and unusual flowers.
The flowers begin as dark cylindrical spears caged in bright red bracts that slowly peel back to reveal a bright purple, slightly fuzzy spike lined with lighter lavender stamens along one side, and topped with long ruby red tipped pistils. The spikes are encased by a vertical skirt of small very dark, almost black, purple petals that are held in slightly lighter colored pointed petal-like sepals. The association for the other common name of Brazilian Candle is easy to see.
The quick growing plant requires only minimal care and is highly versatile. It can be grown in full sun to light shade, and adapts readily as a houseplant. Bright green pointed oval leaves with slightly prominent veins grace an upright, open growing, soft stemmed bush that matures about 2-6 feet.
