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. :)

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

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!
