I bought a Flowering Okra today. The color is similiar to a Tx Star hibiscus. The leaves are different though. The leaves are more rounded...and have 3 rounded points instead of the thinner Tx Star leaves.
The flower is single...very pretty. I would like to find this plant, its latin name, and more about it. The guys at the nursery I bought it from didnt know...ha.
thanks Baa...but that isnt it...the flower is single...but not filled in like the variety you thought...it is single...but almost like a tx star hibiscus...the color is a pinkish, almost a coral mix in it..a tad orange...strange colored like tx star...very pretty...Im wondering if it is annual, or perrenial, and where to put it. I have heard of it spoken in Daves...now I cant find anything on it...oh boy...which I had a digital camera!!!
If it has edible pods I havent seen them. I believe Okra is kin to Mallows/Hibiscus,,,in that family so to speak. The pods I saw were dried, and had seeds in them just like hibiscus. They were dark brown, and well dried. I never saw them green. Sorry I cant give more info right now.
