Abelmoschus esculentus                               

Photographed in a friend’s garden in Wilmington, NC on July 20, 2005.  Most of us know this as Okra, but some old timers call it Oak-ree. No matter how you pronounce, it still tastes awful!  I had a colleague introduce me to roasted Okra with EVOO, salt and spices.  In my humble opinion, it is much better this way than boiled or in soups and stews.  Anyway, this flower is beautiful and adds something spectacular to this old garden standby. Sometimes the beauty is right there next to us and all we must do is look.  The Malvaceae family member gets its beauty from its relatives such as Hibiscus, Turks Caps and cacao.
