Pink Lady Finger

I am looking for a plant that my great aunt calls a Pink Lady Finger. It is a stalk type plant that grows quite tall (5-6ft) and at the top produces a few pink colored flowers that look like bent ladies' fingers. The leaves are pointed. She can remember these flowers as a girl growing up in West Virginia. Any help you can provide would be appreciated as I have had no luck in finding this plant. Thanks.

I am not familiar with Pink Lady Fingers, nor was I able to find anything about it. When having trouble finding a plant with a common name no one can trace back to the Latin name, I ask one of the venerable older folks at a local garden club. They've never let me down yet! Why not give that a try?
