Hardy Hibiscus - Rose of Sharon

Good morning,

We are now enjoying the blooms of our Hardy Hibiscus that were also here on the property when we moved here in 1979.  A common name for these is Rose of Sharon.
This particular "bush" is one that I transplanted out in the front of the house from some that had grown from seed in the back yard.
I have groomed it into a tree shape, rather than the traditional bush that is often used as a hedge.

We have these in a variety of deep pink (show), lighter pink, and white. 

Lovely!

Enjoy,
Lois
