Regal Rose of Sharon

The Rose of Sharon is a royal and regal looking flower - and it literally is the easiest flower to grow.  Simply: plant, water and leave.

I have 3 different varieties of the Rose of Sharon as seen in this post.  This flower is related to the Hibiscus plant and if you look closely - the middle of each Rose of Sharon flower resembles that of the Hibiscus.

The Rose of Sharon does not have a scent.  This flowering bush can grow up to 12 feet in height.  It starts to flower at the end of July and continues to bloom for more than 1 month.  Last summer was extremely hot and my Rose of Sharon bushes only flowered for about 3 weeks.  This summer is much cooler and we are headed into the fifth week of blooming!

Please ENJOY the pictures!
