I planted these from seed this past spring, but the package only said "Hibiscus" Wondering if John can help me ID it? Or anyone for that matter!
Thanks Badseed, now that you told me the name, I done a google search and I think it's a toss up between the trionum and the calyphllus...these 2 look so much alike so I still can't tell...what do you think??
I have one that looks like that too, it's a perennial here and I was surprised that it came back.
Ya know Cala, I forgot to look and see if mine is a annual or perennial! Wonder if mine will come back next year? If it does I will have to do some major thining out!
It is not a perennial for me but it does self seed. It is not a nuisance, but leaves a few behind each year. :)
Abelmoschus manihot? Kinda looks like an okra relative to me.
Ya know Wing, I didn't realize that!! But I think you are right, it does look like okra blooms hee hee I surely hope it ain't though or else my dh will be blunering thru my beds trying to get it LOL
LOLOL! I'm not sure, but I think if it's the ornamental kind it won't produce pods of any decent size for eating, or maybe they won't be palatable to DH? *grin* One can hope!
Keeping my fingers crossed here, I decided to watch the little seed pod that is now forming under the first spent bloom!! I hope this ain't okrie! I'll just die if it is in my flower bed! LOL
It's sort of like okra, but not exactly, lol. DH thought it was okra last year, lol.
Okra is planted up here as an ornamental. Regular okra, as well as some of the ornamental varieties. Also chard, cardoon, and a few other vegetables.
Could be Hibiscus rockii...
Agreed, it is probably H. trionum or H. calyphyllus, and in any case, will self-seed.
Just saw this thread!
O yes John, this thing has tons of seeds!! I picked most of them and maybe I can put them in a better place next year! To me they looked sooo much like Okra! even the seed pods did but yet not as slimie lol
