An erect or trailing herb or sub-shrub, depending on the variety, with variable but usually lobed leaves. The subspecies moschatus has single yellow flowers with a dark purple basal spot. Subspecies tuberosus is a trailing plant with red flowers and an underground tuber. The plant dies back to this tuber in the dry season, emerging again with the wet season. [FNSW, internet sources]. Widely cultivated in tropical regions.
For information on the species see Abelmoschus moschatus Medik. A number of colour forms have been recorded in the several subspecies, from near white through yellow to deep red, but I have found no reference to a form with double flowers.
