Halberdleaf rosemallow

Halberdleaf Rosemallow Flower Base 2290

On August 26th I photographed this halberdleaf rosemallow flower, Hibiscus laevis, that had been planted alongside the pond behind the Central Market on North Lamar (the same place that yielded the recently shown photograph of a dragonfly on a horsetail). This species of mallow is native in various parts of east Texas and grows as close to Austin as two counties away.

After two days of poison ivy, I expect today’s post will come as a relief to many of you.
