What is a double Rose of Sharon? How big does it grow? I like the pretty white flower but the picture looks a little blurry to me.

I'm trying to pursuade hubby to plant a couple Rose of Sharon bushes in a new hill of dirt he created and the Double Rose sounds interesting.

Nice pictures of your fauna and critters too.

Your beautiful photo's are just what I need to see on a dull, wet,overcast Winter's day, Chico, you can see how warm it is. I love the butterfly bush you have and just hope one that I bought is the same. Lovely shots of the critters.

Dee-o-Gee,The Rose of Sharon is about 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
Sorry the pic is blurry..I'll try to get a better one.

I wanted a Rose of Sharon,because they grow fast and I am not too fond of the regular oes I see everywhere.
The double Rose of Sharon,looks like a Camelia and I have hundreds of buds..I have not seen it anywhere else,I love it!

Beautiful pics of your flowers and critters, Chico.

So nice of the squirrels to plant corn for you (or for themselves).

Keep the pics coming. I haven't seen as many of them lately (hint).
