Rose of Sharon in Full Bloom

Sharing one of three Rose of Sharon bushes in my front yard. They are all in full bloom right now. Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are flocking to the nectar in the blooms.

These flowers are in the Hibiscus family. Amazing how similar the blooms are.

The blooms appear in summer and are available in different shades of white, red, pink and purple on the rose of Sharon bush. Growing rose of Sharon is an easy and effective way to add long lasting summer color with little maintenance.

  1. the flowers are lovely and it always makes me feel happy whenever I read the name of this flower. Though I don’t know if we have this here locally. I know I can see hibiscus around but I could not differentiate one from the other.

  2. Your bush looks so lovely. I have way too many problems with my rose of Sharon, they are constantly being attacked by the white mealy bug.

  3. I did mention somewhere earlier that they looked like hibiscus and happy that you now say they belong to the hibisucs family.

    That is a bumper crop really and so beautiful.

    • Yes they are and I discovered this after having my hibiscus on the back deck and started researching years ago. Another amazing fact of nature. Thanks to you.

  4. I do not know the bush under this name, but it is very similar to hibiscus and it blooms with us too … great picture, my friend
