Sunset Hibiscus

Abelmoschus manihot (Hibiscus manihot) is a perennial in the warmer zones, and an annual elsewhere. It bears large showy yellow Hibiscus-like flowers with a maroon eye. It grows well in warmer areas of the U.S. and is easily grown in any well-drained soil in a sunny position. This relative of Okra trades edible pods for much more showy flowers and perennial or re-seeding habits. It is native to tropical Asia and it's leaves are reportedly used as a vegetable.
