|Sometimes I have a hard time replacing old information in my head when I find out I've been wrong, so I am hoping someone here can help me figure out why all of the photos in the database under Abelmoschus moschatus appear to actually be Abelmoschus manihot instead, except the last one. I've grown A. manihot for years so I am familiar with the plant. More than one person has posted these photos, which leads me to believe it is a knowledge gap on my part that makes them seem off to me. Only the last photo looks correct based on my experience. I've also grown A. moschatus several years, both the coral/pink/red types and a yellow one, which is significantly different than those pictured. |
Are there subspecies I am missing?
If someone can help me resolve my confusion, I would be grateful.

|A very interesting question |
I have been looking into , doing some research, and it appears Roberts photos were posted incorrectly into (moschatus) He has two photos already posted to (manihot) of the same plant
sometimes these latin names ''all look alike'' at a quick glance.
This is getting very convoluted
The seed photo by Joy has been copied from the USDA page and is in the wrong place also
This may take a while but I will make the proper proposals to the admins and try to get it right.
Next time you see an error of this magnitude you might bring it up on the database forum ...there are people there that seem to love this kind of research
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

|I will. In this case I thought the error was in my thinking. I can see how anyone could accidentally put photos in the wrong place and although I tried to verify that I was correct, the placement seemed to be validated by subsequent posts, so I decided I must be mistaken. |

|Sorry for the error from so long ago. It's easy to have a photo moved and you can submit a proposal to do that yourself by simply clicking on the photo and looking at the bottom of the page. |
