This beautiful herbaceous plant is part of a small genus and is native to India but now occurs in tropical Asia, Australia, and Africa. It is similar in appearance to Hibiscus and was formerly included in that genus. It is in the Malvaceae family and is related to the common okra. It is grown as an aromatic ornamental and suitable for food, cosmetics, and medicinal purposes as well.

It has 3-6 inch wide pale yellow flowers that last only a day or so, but blooms freely throughout the growing season to frost. Flowers give way to fruit capsules (to 3” long) which have a musky aroma. It can grow to 3-5 feet tall and tend to grow in bushy clumps. Great for beds, border fronts, pots, and containers. It grows well in full to partial sun in reasonably moist, well-drained soil. It is a perennial in tropical regions and an annual in others, making it frost tender. USDA hardiness zone : 9-11 

Price is for 15 seeds
