Thank you Sir for confirming that it cannot be STHALPADMA.

It would be a prize catch if it is a mutant Hibiscus esculentus :)

Sir / Madam,

The Bengali name for Hibiscus mutabilis is STHALPADMA and i have seen it shrub occasionally. But does it have okra like fruit? The attached pictures are of a herb, much smaller than STHALPADMA

Species : Hibiscus mutabilis L. ???
Habit & Habitat : wild herb, about 2 ft., uncultivated land
Date : 17-03-12, 9.54 a.m.
Place : Gobra (Hooghly), WB

Thank you & Regards,
