Okra has to be one of the best "bang for your buck" veggies. It's easy to grow from seed. It survives in 100+ degree heat. It makes tons of fruit. And, my favorite feature of all, it creates these beautiful flowers.
Okra is a member of the mallow family along with turk's cap and hibiscus. We have turk's cap blooming in the shade in the front yard. I can see family resemblance, especially in the pistols in the middle of the flowers.
I wish you could keep cut mallow flowers, but even on the plant, the blooms only last one day.
