Back in June of 2000, Rudy and I flew to Kansas to meet some distant relatives from the Simon Family.
My cousin gave me some little starts off her Rose of Sharon and I brought them back home with me in a baggie. They were about 6-8 inches long then.
Now here they are today!
They are about 6 feet now!
The other morning we saw a hummingbird flying around them, but of course I wasn’t able to get a picture of it.
Here are pics of the blooms.
All of them are pink, except one and it’s:
My cousin’s were all blue, so the difference in the soil here must make mine a different color.
We moved them last year, but they’ve done well anyway!
