I googled Hibiscus+trionum and immediately came up with hundreds of photos of the plant. One seed grower wrote ... Absolutely stunning silvery-yellow flowers with dark centers on bushy plants! Has large flowers on branching compact plants. Very easy to grow and flowers continuously until early fall. Use in borders and containers. Grows to 14" tall.
It would seem to be something safe Kathy ... besides if its no good I hope to move within the next two years anyway.
And Maxine ... N/E Iowa was in pretty bad shape all summer but had some rain in the last month and has greened up a bit. the rain was a bit too late though for the crops.

One thing very absent from this part of the state-flowering weeds and wild flowers. The extended heat and dry weather and along the highways where our state planted thousands of flowers, none there. A few thistles , milkweed etc made it. A friend once gave me a moon flower and told me be careful where you plant it, it takes over. It lasted one season. Not all of us are talented in flower gardens! 10 from SW Iowa

Glad somebody else ID'ed it for you, Paul, 'cause I'm drawing a blank! Very pretty, just a note of caution about transplanting wildflowers/weeds into your garden. I've had some of the prettiest, mildest-mannered flowers I found in the meadow go hog wild when I brought them into my garden, and spread like measles! Some of them I am still trying to eradicate.

OOPs ... I'm in trouble again ... someone identifies this pretty thing as being a Venice Mallow (Hibiscus trionum). . They certainly are perennials. I will have to dig a couple of them up and bring them over to our yard.
