Plant of the Month Pick-July

Rose of Sharon, one of the pretties flowes around. This shrub also comes in a grafted tree form, which makes a great patio tree. The shrub gets to be about six feet tall and wide. They start blooming about now and continue into late August. There come in different colors from the pink you see left to blue, white and a peachy pink. They attrack butterflies which is a quality that is always welcome in my garden.
