Mallow for ID : 301210 : AK-1: Taken at Dambulla, Sri Lanka on the 16th of November, 2010.
The leaves resembled that of Cotton Rose.


Hibiscus platanifolius (Willd.) Sweet (= H. eriocarpus) of Malvaceae, i think. “Maple-leaved mallow”


Malvaceae week: RVS1: Hibiscus platanifolius: Hibiscus platanifolius, a straggling shrub with beautiful flowers. Flower picture from Javvadhu hills, Tiruvannamalai dt. (TN), fruit pic from Talakona forest (AP).

The leaves just like that of a Platanus, so the specific epithet.


what a beauty. The centre of the flower looks like a flower itself.


I think I have earlier also uploaded this. It is a potential ornamental plant but only problem is that the fruits have kind of stinging hairs. Hope some improved variety will come in the future.
