I wonder if it may be Hibiscus aculeatus … Also known as Comfortroot?

No, on second thought …I don't think the leaves are right…hmmm...

If it turns out to be H. aculeatus we don't currently have any photo's in the database, *hint* *hint*:

Hi Damian, I just happened over here, so not sure if you already have found where to post your pics.

[quote="plantladylin"]That's what it looks like to me too!

Comfortroot (Hibiscus aculeatus)


It's pretty easy to add photos in the plant database. If you click on Lin's link it will take you to the plant (above). Once you are there, you will see an option to "Upload a photo" - click on that and add just like you did here. Smiling

You can look through the plant database and find any other plants that you would like to add photos of by clicking on "Plant Database" at the top of your page, from there you can type the name of your plant.

Let us know if you have any questions. Thumbs up

Ok Damien: I've moved one photo of the bloom and one of the leaves to the database. They will go into a queue for the database moderators and you will be notified with a system message when they've been approved and you will be able to view them in the database here: Comfortroot (Hibiscus aculeatus)
