I posted this plant on my This and That Thursday of this week. If you remember I gathered a seed head from a plant at my Dad's this past Summer. (one of the many flowers my mom grew) It finally bloomed yesterday and what a beauty!Abelmoschus manihot (Hibiscus manihot) A large ornamental okra with dinner-plate-sized yellow flowers with dark eyes.
Unfolding slowly in the morning.....
(it didn't take the bees long to find it)
closing gradually in the evening.
Height - 6ft. to 10 ft.
Spread - 3ft. to 6 ft.
Growth Habit- Clumps
Full Sun Only --(mine is in the shade, maybe it will grow bigger in the ground in the sun)
