Please comment, if you know more about this flower...

At 2009, during our tour at Bandarban, we have found this flower. It is almost identical to the Okra flower. Only difference is, okra is a shrubby plant, and this one is a herb. Right now I have only the images of the flower, and you can see the leafs around the flower are not belongs to that plant. That was another weed around the flower. So it is hard to identify the flower accurately.

Possibly this weed plant is Hibiscus cancellatus or Pavonia cancellata. For either cases, this plant pertains to the plant family Malvaceae. This is an annual herbaceous plant and can grow in spit of being thwarted from other proximity weeds.

Immature flowers are marked with red circle.

Flower has five light yellow petals and its a single day flower. Blooms at morning, and starts demising by the progressing of the day light.

Recently I have found that an expert Botanist is calling this flower as Kalo Kosturee(কালো কস্তুরী) and botanical name is Hibiscus abelmoschus.
