Believe it or not, blooming "in the wild" just outside the small chow hall here on base.

Those flowers or their cousins are all over Gitmo. They make hedges of them down there. I was pleasantly surprised too. There are pretty flowers even in tough places.

Seems odd to see such a beauty in such an out of the way place but I guess you have to take what you can where you can.

This plant appears to be a Hibiscus; probably H.moscheutos,
commonly known as Rose Mallow.
They are native to tropic climes.
The Rose Mallow has been a popular decorative garden plant in England for many decades. I would postulate that this one descended from plantings done when this was a British base.
