just starting to bloom zone 6a-flowers only last a day or so
That certainly is a Rose of Sharon, and a beauty at that.
The japanese bettles love it almost as much as roses.
I have a lavender coloured one and yes the beetles are attacking it. I hate them!!!
I have two of them- a pink and a purple that the old owners left and never what they were!!! I only discovered they were a rose of sharon after the beetles began attacking them mercilessly!!!! SEVIN... I ought to buy stock in it !!
They really tore it to shreds before I discovered it... I was too busy keeping the little varmits off my other roses!!
Looks good Kat7!!
Thanks everybody-always wanted arose of sharon-didn't realise I already have one. Rght now I have beetles attacking my vegetable garden, but so far the bugs haven't found my rose of sharon yet. I'll have to keep on the look out for those nasty little guys!
