Rose Of Sharon:  What's in a Name, AnywayRose Of Sharon: What's in a Name, Anyway
By Sharon on August 30, 2015

A rose is a rose unless it's a Rose of Sharon, and then it's a hibiscus. Some say it's the name of a crocus and others swear it's the name of a tulip and then there's some confusion with the lily of the valley. Poor plant, most likely it lives in a state of constant identity crisis, never knowing on which side of the garden it should grow.

A hybrid formed by the fusion of pardalinum and longiflorum. The flowers are almost identical to the lilium pardalinum, while the stem and leaves resemble the lilium longiflorum. It multiplies rapidly (as do the parents) and in a short time you will have a large colony. It has no scent, but its hanging flowers are really beautiful and stand out among other lilies.
