20150913_174302.jpg Not to familiar with tropicals. I think it is. It's not much right now but it was only 4.98. I like the smaller leaves.
Researched and it has yellow flowers that last only a couple hours, starting with a color of apricot then turning yellow and finally a red when finished. Also it's in the hibiscus family. Leaves are about 1/2 to 3/4 inch. Its not very big at all about 12 inches tall. I like it. Anyone have any experience with this, I'll post some pics. Forgive me for the photos.

Interesting plant, never personally saw one in a Bosai pot but I can offer a little information on it. It appears to be a Yellow Mallow in the Hibiscus family. That being said in Jersey(not far from my place) grow it indoors like a Hibiscus. We have a few Hibiscus inside all year and they do good with minimal care. They will get spider mites on occasion but at the first sign I place them in the shower and a single good application of bonide insecticidal soap or similar will take care of them quickly. They handle a cool windowsill in the Winter here that receives a lot of sunlight during the day.
