What is this? A Mystery Plant

Can anyone identify the mystery plant pictured above?  Hint: it is an important crop, though it is not edible.
Happy gardening!

No clue. Medicinal? Necessary for the circle of life? Hmmm...

Gosh... I don't know. The color reminded me a little of an okra blossom, but those are DEFINITELY edible and sooooo yummy! Anyway, I am clueless.
