Photo Description
This bush was planted 17 years ago, when my grandparents built this house from the ground up. Every year in the middle of summer it blooms, and has tons of bees swarming around it (as you can see in the picture).

I planted a woody hibiscus tree that my husband dug up on the side of the road; I didn't know if it would thrive or not. My husband calls it "swamp cotton" because of the beauty of the blossom that looks like a cotton blossom. It is an exquisite decoration to my yard.

Aren't these beautiful?! My nephew planted a few of these when we bought our home over 20 years ago. Now they are like weeds and surround my house. Mine are all different colors, pink, white, purple. Hummingbirds love them.

I picked the hibiscus blossoms and made an arrangement with dried oak leaf hydrangea blossoms.

This gorgeous lady was blooming at our local zoo, in their garden area. She obligingly posed for me. I loved this color against the background of orange flowers.

Here is a Japanese beetle having a snack in my rose of sharon blossom. It is in my back yard. This year is the first year that the entire bush is covered with blossoms.

This woody hibiscus was literally "plucked" from the side of the road. My husband was on a road call for his company - he is a diesel mechanic. He spotted these plants growing on the side of the road in a ditch. He brought it home and I rooted it and planted it in a pot. This is the first year it has bloomed. We enjoy it and it is special to me because my husband "picked" it for me and brought it home. It attracts red throated hummingbirds and that is a joy to watch the hummingbirds feeding in the beautiful pink blooms

Looks like a Rose of Sharon to me. (08/03/2006)

That's doubly-special because it's unique and so lovely, but more importantly your husband took the time to bring it to you! You must treat him like a king? (08/03/2006)

Our oldest son gives me one of these on Mother's Day every year and they are just beautiful. I also enjoy them. (08/04/2006)

Hibiscus and Rose of Sharon's flowers do look alike, but the leaves are larger on a hibiscus (like that one) and a rose of Sharon grows much larger, in a tree. Mine are huge and I just started a hibiscus from seed this year so it will be a while before I get flowers. (08/04/2006)

That is very lovely, but it is a rose of Sharon, not a hibiscus (08/04/2006)

Thank you for clarifying what this plant is; I have heard them called Woody Hibiscus - in fact my mother called them by that name. I love them and to watch the hummingbirds feed on them is a treat. (08/04/2006)
