Planted this last summer and had some small blooms. We are anxious to see how it does this year. I think it's looking nice thus far. The surroundings need some work but we just started this little corner garden and are learning.

It's looking good, my aunts used to have a lot of those in her garden, all of different colors. There were a lot bumble bees flying around it, so be ready for that once it blooms. I remember when I was 5, I was playing around with her flowers and got stung on my cheek, hahaha, well deserved. Looking forward to seeing how yours does :)

Mine started off as little 6 inch tall sticks the year we got the house.. 14 years later they are easily 15 feet tall and covered in blooms every summer. They provide shade to the front of the house all summer and a bit of a wind break in winter.

It is looking good, and quite a bit further along in awakening then ours is this spring in New England (just started with a little green stuff last week after very slow start to warmer weather).

I have the white color and pink color Rose of Sharon in different areas of my yard. Once the flowers grew old and fell off, they are self-seeding and will grow many different trees. I had to uprooted all the little one all spring long.

We have a native hibiscus which I'm pretty sure is in the family of the rose of Sharon. I have one just coming out now and really lovely. The petals splay out in the wind. I'd love to take a photo and put it on the forum when it's really doing its thing!

have to try to get a pics here. on the side pathway that leads down to the valley garden we have two rows of Rose of Sharons on each side, they are now about 20 feet tall, and we have trained them into an arch, so you walk under them for about 6 feet until the opening in to the lower gardens. I think they are blooming now.

Your Rose of Sharon archway sounds beautiful Esther. I would love to see a photo. And I hope you had a happy birthday yesterday. :)
