Pavonia Mallow Flower 4094

Another thing that I found at the Blunn Creek Nature Preserve on June 13th was some flowers of Pavonia lasiopetala, known as pavonia mallow, rose pavonia, rose mallow, and rock rose. The long central column makes it easy to tell that this wildflower is in the same botanical family as the Indian mallow you saw here a couple of weeks ago.
