Found in a deceased friend's garden. I told her family I would try to identify it for them. Blooming now in Canton, GA. The flower is about the size of a quarter.

Why that looks like a perfect match and sounds just like something she would have grown. Thanks very much, carol.

The common name is Tea. The same thing that brings England to a screeching halt every afternoon.

I read that in an English accent, Julie Andrews actually.
Flora, you know I was just trying to get a rise. I really appreciate all you do on here. I can't hold a candle to the depth of your knowledge and feel like a schoolboy who was just scolded. Please don't think there was any meanness at all associated with my juvenile comment.

When I was in Britain markets there had entire sections labeled simply "tea". However, I don't recall any synchronized screeching.
