Did you find out the answer? i signed up on this site just to know about this same plant. It's growing crazy. Blooms last only morning and soon turn into dark black seeds.

Lisanti07028: Would've been nicer to point the OP to right question on "Name That Plant forum". I went there and it is full of individual posts. If you knew the answer, it would've been awesome to just reply here?

seemit - oldgraymare also asked this question on the Name that Plant Forum. Lisanti07028 was simply referring her/him back to his/her own duplicate question. It was answered 6 days ago and ogm responded with thanks. This is the kind of thing that happens when people post on more than one Forum. People following the thread on the 'wrong' forum don't see the outcome.

The plant is Hibiscus trionum.

And for anyone reading this later, this is not native to the US (I mention that since this is the native plant forum).

I am not trying to be negative, but if the original poster had no idea what it is, then that person would not have known where to post it. It doesn't matter that this is the native plant forum, it's about sharing information.

Thanks Jim-1. I posted it here before I found the name that plant forum. I tried to remove it but it wont let me! Sorry if I irritated anyone.

I certainly wasn't being critical of it being here, just wanted to point out that it isn't native for anyone stumbling on this later and having THEM think that because it is here then it is native ....

oldgraymare, don't worry at all!
