What kind of fungus?

Waterloo, IL

I found this growing in my Hibiscus plant. What is it called?

I don't know what the mushroom is but that is such a nice picture.

It could be Armillaria mellea, a Honey Mushroom. I've seen a few around here lately. They feed on dead or decaying wood and can be harmful to some plants. I'm no expert so I hope someone else chimes in.
