A reader has, once again, managed to stump me on a plant ID question. This particular plant:
- was originally purchased via an ad in Town and Country
- has been around for several years
- blooms "all the time."
My only guess is that maybe the plant is in the Malvaceae -- that pistil (?) sticking out of the flower looks a lot like certain Abutilon and Hibiscus varieties I've seen. Though the leaves completely don't match.
So how about it? Even if you don't know a precise species or variety, confirming a family or genus would still be helpful in tracking it down.
