Leaves are evergreen, simple, oval, dark green above, light gray below, about 2" long.
Flowers are 1" across, hibiscus like (which means the stamens are fused into a column surrounding the stigma) pink to rose color, fading to white, produced in the summer.
Fruit is a brown capsule. when open they contain very fine hairs that causing itching. Doubt they cause cows to itch.
foliage might look like a holly oak, maybe…
