#312 They called me Malvaviscus arboreus, also known as Malvaviscus drummondii, Malvaviscus jordan-mottii, Malvaviscus conzattii, Malvaviscus arboreus var. grisebachii, and Malvaviscus balbisii. I pay homage to the male botanists Drummond (I couldn’t find his records), Jordan-mott (I couldn’t find his records), Conzatt (I couldn’t find his records), August Heinrich Rudolf Grisebach, and Giovanni Battista Balbis. They first catalogued me in 1787.
