Rose of Sharon

Just wanted to say that I love my Rose of Sharon!!
 I have four shrub/trees and they are just fabulous!! Two are white with red centers, one is more lavender and then the pinkish one above!! Two were little tiny twigs that I brought back from Massachusetts in 1997 from my Aunt Maries yard and now they are probably about 8 feet tall!!! Great plants for the garden!!!

My hardy fuchsia
 Fuchsia (/ˈfjuːʃə/, few-shə) is a vivid purplish shade of red,[1] named after the flower of the fuchsia plant, which took its name from the 16th century German botanist Leonhart Fuchs.
The color fuchsia was first introduced as the color of a new aniline dye called fuchsine, patented in 1859 by the French chemist Francois-Emmanuel Verguin. Its name was changed the same year to magenta, after an historic battle near the Italian city of that name.[2]
It is doing well up against the front of the house!!!
Enjoy the Earth!!!! Martha
