Texas Star Hibiscus
A few days ago I read about the man who got busted for growing marijuana who claimed that he thought is was Texas Star Hibiscus.
This is the second year this has been growing in our yard and I am quite happy with it. Last year there was one long stem that was about 5 feet high. This year there were two, the smallest being over 6 feet and the other being almost nine feet tall:
Of course the crux of the matter is if the leaves look similar enough to pot that someone could not distinguish it from pot. At a quick look I would say that it could be possible but I will let you be the judge for yourself.
It is a great plant by the way.
