One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

This malvaceous beauty looks better going than coming
I think, but then I tend to feel that way. (Was that wrong?) Just inside the entrance to the Herb Garden, before you get to the Yard Long Beans, some of which are, in fact, approaching a yard in length.
And before you get to the Rose Garden where Rosa bracteata straddles a fence bearing single saucer-shaped flowers held horizontally.
