Wednesday Words.....Mystery Plant
Well guys.......first of all, Gail at http://clayandlimestone.blogspot.com/ says she is NOT the nutty gardener that sent me a mixed up bag of seeds. Sorry Gail....her blog is so worth visiting! Maybe I will be able to figure out that mystery along with this plant... Might better call Scooby and the gang!! Thanks for all of the suggestions on what this plant may be...we have it down to two choices...
Castor Bean --Ricinus communis
Red Leaf Hibiscus -- Hibiscus acetosella
It is very similar to the Hibiscus manihot --Abelmoschus manihot--Ornamental Okra that I have growing....I guess until I can get a definite ID I will wait until it blooms....I am so hoping it is Red Leaf Hibiscus...I am going to continue to research some more!!
