Abelmoschus

My Newest Flower

I am in love with the newest flower in my plant collection — the Abelmoschus — which I purchased at a farmer’s market two weeks ago. It’s already grown more than a foot and puts out flowers almost daily. Unfortunately, that’s about as long as the blooms last — a day.

It’s ivory petals take on a darker yellow hue close to its crimson center. Elegant is the word that describes this blossom.
