Thanks everyone for helping me out with the name of the flower. Those of you who thought it was a hibiscus are right. Thank you, Gary Oldham, for giving me the name of the Texas Star Hibiscus. That’s exactly what it is. Such a lovely plant. Once I had the name I was doing a little searching for more info on it and ran into this interesting little post. http://www.shortnews.com/start.cfm?id=41645 Here’s  pictures of both types of leaves. I guess the leaves do look a little like pot-

  1. Wow! That doesn’t look like the Hibiscus that grows in our area. Your comparison was funny. Yesterday when I showed my better half your photo, I asked him what the flower was; he’s more familiar with flowers and plants than I am. He said, “I don’t really know, but that looks like pot there.” 🙂


  2. LOL on the leaves looking like pot. 😀
