We have this annual volunteer plant/s growing all over our yard but I don't know what it is, whether it's a weed or valued annual. The blossoms last only 1 day and they look like miniature hibiscus or ablemoschus but it doesn't have a woody stem and the plants are rather sprawling. I haven't seen it in any of the neighbor's yards which seem strange...maybe they pull them out before it blooms. We keep them around because the flowers are so beautiful tho fleeting.
I found some hellebores along the street curbing (the township will pick up plant material for composting)tossed out by someone . Of course being a scrounge, I snatched them up especially since they had roots and clumps of dirt attached. With the humidity we've been having they had not wilted. As I was planting them I noticed that one had a green stem close to the base of the plant and the other a reddish purple so I hope they are two different varieties. Can't wait to see the blooms.
