Turk’s cap is an absolute must-have in any garden. This tough, adaptable shrubby perennial can handle sun or shade, dry or moist soil, and will reward you with bright red blooms that hummingbirds and bees love. Turk’s cap dies to the ground in the winter but comes back reliably each spring. It has a long blooming period, and it is a good starter plant for people who might not necessarily have a green thumb. As a bonus, the leaves and fruit of Turk’s cap are edible.
