Mr List was asking for an I.D. of this plant being delicately sat upon by a Butterfly, I've no idea what it is as it was bought solely on it's foliage and no other attention was paid to it :oops: . I can say though it is very hardy :lol: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid= ... to_comment

pass it around :lol:

I'm at a loss, but some type of relation to Maple might be a start, but certainly not native, with the size of those leaves.

edit: actually isn't it something like the name 'panax' in it.. it's in the family Araliaceae Im sure...

Olopanax? maybe not that, but probably on that line.

Adrian the leaves look fairly similar to Hibicus mutabilis, and Hibiscus sinosyriacus

If they are Hibiscus, I would never have thought so.. interesting.

It looks like a green type of Hibiscus acetosella (if such a thing exists icon_scratch )

Hibiscus eh... -19C though, isn't that a bit too far for Hibiscus? (If it ever flowers I'll post :lol: )
