Wild Flower for ID : Kenya : 110912 : AK-1: Seen at Tsavo National Park, Kenya on 25/1/2009, growing wild.

Plant was small bushes.

Is it some Abelmoschus species?


… me too would guess it as a species of Abelmoschus.


Any clues to this?

Although I have only this picture, the leaves here are not lobed.


Difficult to say even whether it is Hibiscus or Abelmochus without calyx and epicalyx. One should never miss side view of flower.


No problem … This was taken before I joined eflora. That’s the reason no other details available.


With limited image quality could it be Hibiscus panduriformis Burm.f. ?


Thanks, … I think more closer to Hibiscus vitifolius rather than Hibiscus panduriformis


Yes … Going through my East African plants after a long gap.


I agree with … It looks close to Hibiscus calyphyllus Cav. as per the flower.
