Hi all, sorry I have been gone for so long. We have finally gotten everything settled down from the wedding, honeymoon, receptions, and all that jazz :p . I can't believe it has been a month and a half since I have been on here. My mom has a flower that she can't remember the name of any one have any ideas?? She would really like to know. Thanks guys, I will include a few pictures.

First name that came to mind was "weed"!

yeah that's what I said, but she did buy it, it gets yellow flowers as you can see. I just don't remember what the name was and neither does she. It is a periannual

The closest I can come up with is "pelargonium". Dont know if you guys have them over there:confused:

:ca: Looks like an Abutilon, or flowering maple to me, but here they are annuals.

They sell them in with the tropicals here. Don't know the botanical name, but they call them a flowering maple (ingenious). I'll see if I can find the botanical name for you.

he,he this post is from october 2006,but maybe the OP still needs an answer:confused:
If they left this plant growing,it's probably huge by now:)

Too funny, I should have paid more attention to the date. Just found this garden section....I'm an avid gardener.

Thanks for all your help guys, guess I have been away longer than I thought with school! I will have to let my mom know the names and see if they sound right. My flowers are just poking through the ground I am so excited!!
