Behold the Halberd-Leaved Rose Mallow! Mallows (like hibiscus and okra) are great because they grow in swamps and make disgusting slime and we turn that ooze into marshmallows and gumbo. Bumblebees and several moth species feed off this mallow, including a moth named, incredibly, Delightful Bird-Dropping Moth. The saucer-sized showy flowers bloom for a single day, and I guess...the leaves...look like a halberd? A kind of sword? Sure!
