This has been a great year for my Rose of Sharon bush. The plentiful rainfall has resulted in a profusion of large blooms. The variety I have is 'Lavender Chiffon.' Here are a couple of pics Caleb took.
I also had a couple of blooms on the cuttings I rooted from the bushes next door. I'm not sure what variety this is.
Now I just need to figure out a place to plant these in a landscape that is getting crowded with plants.
