UK or Unknown Plant
Remember this...April 14, 2009
"While on a garden tour(with entry fee) last October, I helped myself to seeds from a plant that I have NO IDEA what it was because it wasn't marked. It stood about 5 feet tall and lost all its flowers,looked like a deciduous flowering shrub with seeds that were the same size as spiderflowers but dimpled. Figuring out what the heck I'm growing will be one of my missions this summer."
Well here are the seedlings. We started all our seeds late.

Then came the RABBIT !
After the rabbit eat them, I just left them to die by the shed.

Weeks later my husband said "I think you should take a look at that potted plant by the shed".
Well....look at it now !!

Still waiting for it to flower to be sure, but folks at 'gardenweb' suggested
Swamp Rose Mallow or (Hibiscus palustris)closely related to Hibiscus moscheutos.
It's been 4 and a half months and I'm getting very impatient to see some flowers !
Mission almost accomplished.
