Sharon’s Rose

Rose of Sharon

We have one Rose of Sharon in our front yard.  Ritchey keeps it carefully trimmed into a bush.  That could possibly be since we had a Rose of Sharon jungle at our last house!  They spread so easily – grow tall and grow quickly!  And we had them in every color – white, dark lavender, light lavender.  Now we have only white – but it’s my favorite!

This small bush is loaded with buds and blooms!

Once the flower opens it reveals the crimson at the base of each petal!

Open in all it’s glory it’s quite a masterpiece!

I have a niece named Sharon Rose – I always consider this her plant – Sharon’s Rose!
