Did you know cotton and okra are cousins? The plants are botanically related from the same scientific family Malvaceae.
The veined leaf shapes are very similar with a reddish purple spot at the base of each petal.
The blooms are similar too.
The final product!
One fills our bellies, the other covers our bellies. I love both!
