It is just gorgeous! I miss my Rose of Sharon trees. I planted them when I lived in TX and again in Mass. I wonder if they still are as beautiful. Thanks for sharing! ~karen

This is a gorgeous flower, I have a rose of sharon in purple. I did not know they came in white. So lovely. Now I have to find a white one to plant along with my purple.
