    My youngest (autistic) son brought it home from school, which is nice, but he *didn't* bring home any information about it. Help?

    Me of the black thumbs says it looks like a geranium. And it took me all this time since you first posted to remember that name!!! [​IMG]

    I will be spending all weekend in plant identification websites. At least it'll give me something to do?

    As far as black thumbs: I am usually AWFUL, but for some reason my plants, vegetables and flowers, have done really well this year. Of course I've given up anything too delicate. Moss-roses, begonias, azaleas, mostly, as far as flowers go. Of course I've got roses, but those are pretty well established. I don't think a bomb could move those suckers.

    Can you get a closer pic of the flowers/buds? At first I thought it was a hibiscus but the leaves are wrong.
    It could be salvia. If it is, do your research. Salvia is a pretty powerful hallucinogenic:
