Okra Flowers

Until I moved to the south I knew nothing of okra (except that I found it slimy), and until this summer (when my husband planted some) I couldn't imagine what kind of plant it grew on (okra trees?), and until yesterday I had no idea it produces flowers of incredible delicacy and beauty. Needless to say, along the way I learned that it can be *delicious*.

Does it grow on a vine?

It grows on leafy plants that get maybe two feet high. We're growing ours in a big pot, and it seems to be doing beautifully.
