new header,...

Anyone know what kind of flower that is in the header?  It opens up in the morning and closes at night..


EDIT - Rich says the flowers are opened in the morning and close sometime during the heat of the day.  We looked at google images of both Rose of Sharon and Morning Glories and neither has the same kind of leaf we have on our plant.  Our flowers are large also...around 3-5 inches across..

Any more ideas?

Yep, looks like a morning glory to me. I have had them in blue. Is it wild? I planted mine from seed. My granny told me they come up wild and take over. I never had that problem!

I would have said one of the morning glories but I am wondering if it could also be some kind of hollyhock or something in the hibiscus family?

Looks like a hibiscus variety to me. Morning glories are climbing vines.

It is a Hibiscus... the neighbor down the street has one... they are huge! Can't believe you just had one pop up! He took such care of his... all kinds of different colored varieties, so pretty.
Keep up the good work!

I think it is a variety of Hibiscus. They are gorgeous flowers.

Have a super great day.
