I finally have rose of Sharon. He brought starts home from Granny's today. In purple pitcher is Left: lavender, right:pink with deep red center. Granny and Gramps brought their plants from Ohio long ago. These will go behind the Walnut tree. 9.9.18
It's funny because they never appealed to me until I had a close look. I hear they're easy to propagate. Probably not in my garden. 50/50 chance. 🐮 I'll get seed for both types next time I'm out at grannys. Woohooligans back at ya! @anges @shelleysnyder @lesliecole @Cyndi @gjones
@columbiariver they're tough little things. I started some from seed last year, forgot about the tiny pots outside during the winter... Totally unprotected. They came back this spring and even though I wasn't watering them they survived. Finally got them into the dirt and they are four feet tall now... One season! I'm using them as a privacy hedge.
