This is beautiful. I'd love to know what it is.
It looks like a Matelea sp. but doesn't match any of the Matelea sp. listed for Oklahoma (http://plants.usda.gov/checklist.html). The structures curling over the center of the flower are unusual for a Matelea sp.
Does this form seedpods in the fall?
I'd recommend that you contact someone knowledgeable in Oklahoma to get this identified. You might try the Oklahoma Biological Survey through
