Flowers as big as dinner plates

Anybody know what these are? I'm so glad I didn't weed out my garden this spring. Seriously, I have three long raised beds (what, 120 feet EACH?), two along my driveway invaded by bees and wasps (shudder) and one along the length of my backyard. Also a rundown rose garden along the back of our house and a mixed perennial border alongside our garage. I am so not a gardener (and I'm terrified of bees) that everything looks like crap. But occasionally I'll get a pleasant surpise, like these unknown beauties. TIA.

Oh, and does this photo posting program ROCK, or what? Posted by Hello

    Those are tropical hibiscus, my dear, and some lovely ones at that! Be sure to cut back and mulch over once they're done blooming and before your really cold weather sets it...

    Hey, I love those hibiscus! I'm waiting to get some myself for the mudpit in front of our house and they keep delaying at the garden center. They're also called "Rose of Malo".
