    A row of about 7 Rose of Sharon are starting to bloom. These were twig cuttings literally pushed into the ground about ten years ago and kept watered and they flourished. There is a white and a mauve. It is amazing how there is nothing one day and suddenly the whole shrub is ablaze with color.

    I'm pretty sure this plant is in fact Hibiscus and not Rose of Sharon (Hypericum Calycinum ) Rose of Sharon is a ground cover plant here in the U K, with yellow flowers .There are other species of Hypericum the most common being Hypericum Hidcote which is a medium sized deciduous shrub.

    Two completely different plants. Hypericum Calycinum's common name is St. Johns Wort. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=a520
    While RoS is in the Hibiscus family. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=c522

    In the U K Hypericum Calycinum is known by two common names , one being St John's wart the other rose of Sharon, thank goodness for Latin names as this somewhat clarifies the situation.
