General Information

the leaves have 3 main segments that each resemble an oak leave, the leaves alternate up the stem, the flower resembles a small hibiscus or mallow but the leaves do not match any of the images I've seen, before it flowers there are large teardrop shaped pods with about 4 dark hairy lines per petal section, when the flower is done the pod is left open with small black seeds. Please tell me what this is.
