The flowers for this beauty bloom right from the branches. This adaptation is called cauliflory. Cauliflory is a botanical term referring to plants which flower and fruit from their main stems or trunks rather than from new growth and shoots. This can allow trees to be pollinated or have their seeds dispersed by animals which cannot climb or fly. Plants in the Pavonia genus belong to the mallow family, Malvacaeae, along with chocolate and hibiscus.
