My first link to roses was in Kamloops, BC where they grew wild along the roadside in town where I would walk along on the sidewalk in the summer time and catch the fragrance that they gave off. I have also heard the term Rose of Sharon are you familiar with this term. I think it was mentioned in biblical times. Let me know if you have information on that type of Rose. Happy New Year

Hi PMP...
What we call Rose of Sharon is actually a hibiscus, and the source of my name. The word Sharon is a Hebrew name, I think, meaning a plain or a plateau, or something similar.

I am not at my home computer, but when I get home next week remind me to send you a photo or two of my Rose of Sharon blooms...They grow heavily here.

Happy New Year, great to hear from you!
