I ordered seeds online and one of the seeds grew into a plant that I know that I didn't order and it's very pretty but I haven't got a clue as to what type of flower it is. It must have accidentally gotten in with my seed packet. Does anyone know what kind of flower it is? The leaves are unusually shaped and the flower is only open one day. It's very pretty even if the bloom is short lived. I am wondering if it is a perennial or and annual and if it will produce seeds that I can harvest for next year. Thanks to any and all who can help me identify it.

It certainly looks like a Hibiscus but I can't figure out which species as the leaves are so narrow.

Thank you for your help that is it exactly. It is listed as an invasive weed in some states and is commonly known as the Flower of an Hour plant. I think it is lovely even though the blossoms don't last long. I am going to keep some of the seeds and plant them next spring in my wild flower garden.
