Odd Man Out ~ Color Crazy Lilac

Last year my Rose of Sharon bushes were covered in blooms. All white blooms… except for these lilac/purple ones. I though it was so odd, until I researched and this does happen every now and then. Usually it is when you first plant the bushes. 

If you have different colored bushes,  when they drop their seeds, they grow very easily, and one seed from each plant can hit the same spot, causing different colored blooms.

The mystery is all three of my bushes have white blooms. I think maybe a bird dropped a seed somewhere along the way. That also has happened in my garden with other plants. These are called incidental plants. I have had plants sprout up that I did not plant. 

Nature is amazing, as I always say. Something to learn every day.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
