Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus)

Postby Durgan » Tue Jul 13, 2010 4:15 am 12 July 2010 Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus)

This magnificent plant flowers every year, and most of the flowers appear suddenly one day. There are seven plants and only one bush is now in full bloom. These plants were small cutting planted five years ago. Many seeds germinate and must be cut to prevent too much spreading. The plant also makes a beautiful hedge. The plant may be grown as a bush or small tree by appropriate pruning. There are many different flower colors.
