definetly a flower :-) but .. which one ? A rose ?

Yael said...

Sorry Sandra - no rose... :-)

Dawn of LaTouchables said...

I'm stumped, but I know this flower...I just have to think some more...and I'm really working at it :-)

Dawn of LaTouchables said...

I have two hibiscus, and this looks like one, but I'm missing the huge stamen. Is it a hibiscus?

Yael said...

No dear Dawn, no hibiscus... But you are very good...
I believe you have seen this flower... :-)

Jutta said...

Liebe Yael,

ich hätte auch auf einen Hibiskus getippt. Aber Du hast ja schon geschrieben, dass es keiner ist. Ist es denn etwas, dass es auch bei uns gibt?

Liebe Grüße
Jutta

Dawn of LaTouchables said...

Das habe ich auch gedacht--vielleicht gibts es hier in Deutschland?

Oder Florida???

Yael said...

In Deutschland gibt es diese Blume nicht - in Florida ja...

Yael said...

Aber ich glaube schon, dass Du diese Blume schon mal gesehen hast Jutta - diese Blume ist Dir nahe...

Objekte-aus-Ton said...

Ist es ein Stechapfel?? Wie heißt noch der botanische Name?

Objekte-aus-Ton said...

Ah, Datura heißt er!

Yael said...

No, sorry Gaby, no Datura either... Nothing in common with Datura - not family, not genus, not order, not tribe...

Hilde said...

I too thought about Datura at first... but you say it is not... And no Hibiscus either...

The flower is absolutely beautiful! I have a feeling I have seen it before, but no name comes to me.
Just a quick guess: could it be a variety of Althea?

You are making us very very curious here :-D

Yael said...

No, no, no Althea, no not the marshmallow plant...
But Althea and Hibiscus and this flower are of the same order... :-)

Come on ladies, you SHOULD know this flower - it brings you sooooo much pleasure in life! :-)

Hilde said...

...Portia tree (Thespesia)??...

Yael said...

This is of the same order too - but no Hilde, it is not a Portia tree - but yes, the flower of it also looks a bit similar... And the Portia tree is of many uses - but since now, as far as I know, it did not bring pleasure to me personally...
