Please help me identify this large shrub/plant/tree. It is over 12 feet tall and has alternating leaves that are heart shaped. The leaves are several inches across in size. It is in my front yard and it is a giant. I don't see any fruit or flowers on it, but I have only owned the house for a couple of months. I live in central florida and have sandy soil. Thank you in advance.

That is it! Thank you Scott.

Your link and suggestion led me to a couple of links. I don't know that I could easily discern between the Seaside Mahoe (Thespesia populnea) and the Sea Hibiscus (Hibiscus tiliaceus). Thank you very much again.
