Ask the Expert:Can you identify this plant?
I have a plant that I would like to have identified. I have attached a picture below.Â The leaves are a medium green and are elongated with serrated edges.Â The blossom is a cream colour and I have had trouble identifying the exact colour of the centre - it is either a deep vibrant brown or a deep purple.Â There are 5 petals on each flower and yellow stamens in the centre.Â The flower is in bloom when I awake in the morning and when the plant is in shade or when it is dusk, the flowers are spent.

Plant Expert Reply:
I can't see a leaf clearly to make a positive identification on the species but it definitely in the Hibiscus genus.Â I would guess a Hibiscus moscheutos (common rose mallow or swamp rose mallow) or a Hibiscus trionum (Flower-of-an-hour).Â The rose mallowsÂ are woody-based perennials hardy in zone 5-10.Â The Flower-of-an-hour are short-lived perennials that are hardy in zone 10-11.
