Rose Of Sharon

These shrubs are well worth adding to the landscape. Blooms are prolific in late summer; and attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. They are also known as Althea and Hibiscus.
Roses of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus)

They certainly aren't shy bloomers and put on a plentiful display.

Perfect banner Leon!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Wonderful banner Leon! I love Rose of Sharons. Lovey dubby I have a very young one I received in a plant swap and can't wait to see how it turns out.

I have to admit this one caught me "asleep at the switch". Garden and yard work kept me outdoors most of the week so I missed seeing this banner posted until today. There were strong storms across much of the region yesterday which kept me away from the PC. Several areas in this region were in the path of high winds, hail and power outages on Monday, August 10 causing tree and structure damage. Radar images showed potential storm damage in several states including WI, IL, MI, KY, IN, OH and Iowa.

I don't like to dwell on storms, but it is important to pay attention before they occur, and make necessary plans for safety and protection. Here is the photo the banner was taken from in 2008. I had originally planted the shrub as a "start" back in 1994. It wasn't more than a sprout from a seed when given to me.

Beautiful banner Leon. Thank you for posting your beautiful pic for all to see.

Love your avatar pic. Beautiful and colorful. It would make for a wonderful Multi Plant pic, if you decide to post it.
