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.

|Great Article Sharon; I've learned the following:
1. Biblical scholars and historians can't agree on which plant the Rose of Sharon truly is.
2. Rose of Sharon is a common name applied to several different blooming plants.
3. They also root by cuttings.
4. It is the name of a major character in John Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath".
5. I've learned @zuzu was born and raised in Korea where I was once privileged to visit.
Thank you, Sharon for some thought provoking reading!
