My Rose of Sharon plants

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!

    Yes! Even after moving them. Helped getting sprinklers set up over there, even if they are only temporary.
