It looks a little like a Hollyhock, about four feet tall, just started
putting out these big yellow blossoms. The leaves look unlike any
hollyhocks I've grown previously.
Any idea what it might be?
It's not Okra, I grow plenty of that. Here is another photo of the
mystery flower, shows the foliage a little better. Very distinctive
Here's a site for us to distinguish 'Hibiscus cannabinus' aka Kenaf
Even though this is written in japanese, you can see the difference by
viewing pics and their names 'Abelmoschus manihot' ('Hibiscus
cannabinus' ) ,
'Abelmoschus esculentus' (Okra).
i hope this helps.
The OP could browse
but I'm also leaning towards Abelmoschus manihot.
But Hibiscus cannabinus and Abelmoschus manihot are not the same plant;
as Hibiscuses go they're pretty distantly related.
