Returning

Each year despite the lack of rain for days on end, we are graced with prolific blooms on the Rose of Sharon ( Hibiscus syriacus ) bushes.
This particular bush was a volunteer, a single seed or two carried by the wind or possibly a bird.
It is also a second generation plant, the original bush belonging to my husband's mother who shared it's propagated beauty from her garden to ours.
I look forward to it's return year after year.

I tried to keep one, but I unfortunately killed it. :(

I loved this bush. My Dad gave me a cutting of this but my husband killed it off. He said he couldn't control it.

Thanks for the memory!

Beautiful plant - I have one too but it will not bloom until much later in season. So glad I could enjoy yours early. Have a great week.

Jo, So pretty. Love those flowers. I had a lavender one in town. We just got a ten minute rain . After all the rain we had this late spring to the point of it standing in the fields, it's really dry here now. We need some rain now for the fields and lawns. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

It is such a beautiful bud and bloom. We can't grow them here outside. Well we can but the winter takes it out overy time.
