This stalk is 5 feet high in damp soil. Blossom is a little smaller than a baseball. What is it?

    The flower looks a lot like a white hollyhock but the leaves don’t look right for that.

    Related to Hollyhock, but I think it’s a perennial hibiscus. http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/plants/landscape/flowers/hgic1179.html
    They come in colors from white to deep red and flower sizes can be VERY large.

    These white hibiscus grow all along the highways in SE Georgia. More this year than ever due to the rain.
